Ordered in one of the Johnny A style kits from RM Olson. Still getting the hardware together. Upgrading the tuners, electronics, pickups. Was also expecting a flame top and got a quilt. So my finish plan needs to be revised. Here are a few pics.

First time using incur, so the pics came out larger than I wanted. I sized them for message board, maybe have to be smaller still.

I always have trouble finding the right size with IMGUR, but with a figured top as nice as that I don't mind the size.

Looks good so far, and can't wait to see this finished!

What finish do you have planned?
