    May I suggest Tru Oil. Once you get the hang of it it's very easy to use and makes everything look glorious.

    I think you should paint it shell pink. Only manly men play pink guitars.

    Pretty wood ‘mano - consider a translucent finish. I have a Tele with a red translucent finish and it looks nice.

    Nice. I built a Carvin kit a few years ago. It didn't come out perfect, but it's pretty nice, it's definitely distinctive, and it has a great, punchy tone.

    Nice- I didn’t know you could get Carvins in kit form.
