There are two more things I want to do before I start sanding this bad boy. First, I want to soften the border on the edge of the guitar with a radius so it is more comfortable to play and also so the edge won't chip. Second, I want to increase the depth of some of the relieved flat areas on the carving. I want to break up the low flat areas with curved surfaces so it flows a little better and has a more organic look. I'm not looking forward to sanding this thing at all. It's going to be a slow and messy process, and unfortunately since the guitar has the poly-coat on the uncarved areas, I'm going to have to sand the entire thing, not just the carved areas.
Ok now the good stuff:
