This is a little sneak peek of the finish:
 

 
This is the underside of the top just before it was glued up. In the hollow area, it's first masked off and finished, then the shielding paint, then the glue up. The wood is gonna pop like crazy with finish.

Ready for inlays, frets, and then the decision to selectively finish the top trans red or not.  

 

 

  Loving the woods and the "Hearter Omega" carving detail... really pretty!

That's just surreal. Could be a little redder, with those blue inlays. Heck, I'd hate to second guess nature on that one... glad it's not my call. =)

It might as well be your call, dude.  Redder is better.  This thing is looking really cool.  I'm dying to see the rest of the walnut with the backplates.
 
This is what I had in mind for the color.

Roger on the red wash.  
 
I'll snag the backplates for a photo when they catch up.

Here's the red tint sample and the peghead meeting for the first time. They are like twins!
 

 
The logo has a mask over it, and that will come off so there won't be any red wash over the inlay. I know that looks a little odd now, but it's only temporary.
