Flooded with acetone, you get a sneak peek at the finished appearance, though Redwood usually isn't quite as dark with the finish as it is with the solvent.

Yes, it's Flame Maple. And while this bass closely resembles Michael's bass, this one isn't his! I'll start a new thread for it later.

I'd love to see this one too! It would make a great pair with this one. (Unfortunately, that's not in my future... anytime soon anyway. But I'd still love to see it!)
