Oil ? Finish on Ash Guitar Body
At long last I am about to complete the "woodwork" part of my guitar.
I am using Ash for the body with a rock maple neck,rosewood fretboard.
I am going to use Feast Watson Tung oil on both (and lemon oil on the fretboard) BUT I am not sure if I should use a sanding sealer more so on the ash as it does have a fairly open grain.
Does the Sanding Sealer ,seal the grain?
If any body (excuse the pun) has any advise.I am looking at getting a smooth ,natural finish with a slight sheen.
What effect would the sealer have on the tone quality of the ash?
Should I buff the final cote?
How do I post a photo?
