Shell Pink looks great with a parchment guard. When I get my tele finished, I'll post some pics.

Stew Mac drill pads.
Thanks, Mark and Sundaram. I used the StewMac drill pads and they worked great. The only down side was it now shows how uneven the top on my CV50s Tele is. I may make a new bo ...

I haven't tried it, but I bet that laying down a thin (1/8 or 1/4) board on top of the veneer, effectively sandwiching the veneer between the guitar body and the thin board would minimize, if not alto ...

I just apply it with a soft cotton rag, rubbing rather vigorously in circles, let it dry, then buff it out by hand.

Check Amazon, TNT. There's quite a few blades available there at what seem like decent prices.

Thanks, Old Black. I already have the (Rigid) oscillating sander and plan on using it "up to the line", then finish with templates and my router. I wish I still had my big DeWalt planer, b ...

After using the filler primer, I wiped it down with lighter Fluid and I didn't lose any primer. I'm thinking that Naptha probably won't touch it. Then again, I wasn't really trying to remove it.

Thanks for the input, Kregg.
I'm letting the sun work on it for a few days, and if that doesn't bring joy, I'll start with the cleaning products. I think I'll experiment on the backside of the guard ...
