A few weeks ago, I picked up a LC-Style Guitar kit from the Maker Shed. I have always wanted this style of guitar, and the fact that it’s a kit made me want it even more. The fist step to assembling the guitar is to finish all the wood components, and that’s where I’m asking for your help.

The wood is absolutely beautiful, especially the edge-banded, arched maple top. I was thinking of applying some kind of clear finish, but that seems too simple. A sunburst always looks good on this style of guitar, but that seems too common. I want something that is one of a kind.

I would love to hear what kind of finish you think would make this a truly unique guitar. Better yet, do you know of a great resource for different finishing techniques? Have you made a guitar? Let me know in the comments. When I decide on a finish, I’ll make sure to document the process and post it online. Thanks!
