Ok a few pics with the protective coating on the guitar. I've got two coats on the top/sides and that'll be enough. Will do one more coat on the back tomorrow. It's still wet so it's darker than it'll be once it dries. The flame changes and shimmers depending on how you move it. Looks really good in person and can't wait to snap a few pics on proper daylight. The amber dye added just the right amount of that golden hue to the mahogany and maple.
