Tomorrow William, my son, and I will watch the Superbowl.  We are both heavily invested in illegal wagering and this is an annual tradition for us.  When I devised my completion schedule for the 12 string, I did NOT factor in things like Superbowl, dinner, sleep, or brunch.   But, with today’s progress, I am one day ahead of schedule and can use that down time to watch the Superbowl with William tomorrow.

I sanded with 220 all day, stained the neck with Tobacco Brown, which I believe will give the mahogany neck a similar look to the unstained walnut.  Applied vinyl sealer to the neck and body, and will let sit overnight before filling grain tomorrow.
