Thanks for all the comments. I'm was tempted to shellac the inside but am going to leave it alone as for now my goal is going to be close as I can figure out how to get to a vintage d18. Love this Blues Creek kit. Thanks for doing what you do guys!

Your workmanship looks impeccable. You'll end up with a nice guitar. The one thing you can't build in is aging.

I have a theory, based on nothing in particular, that the resin in wood gradually crystallizes, or something, over time, and that is why older instruments, or instruments made of old wood, sound the way they do. That idea may be completely bogus, however.

You will definitely notice a difference in the sound in the first couple of weeks, as the wood gets used to being a guitar and settles in. That will continue, probably "forever," but the rate of change tails off fairly rapidly.

Thank you again. A big goal of this project for me is to notch up my woodworking skills and shop setup several pegs. This is a stretch so am focusing on setup and execution. Will post again after a few more steps are done.
