    Since I know Karl reads this forum from time to time, I'll just ask this here - What's being used to finish the fret(less)board? Epoxy? Lacquer?

    Trav, the fingerboard will be unfinished. Ebony can take a massive amount of punishment, as Steve can attest :)

    Edit: Hey btw, I grew up on Lake Rd in Ballston Lake, small world eh?

    Not quite complete, but getting close. And I need to get my playing time in on it ;)

    Hey Steve, are the knobs on your 5'er brown or black? I don't remember and can't tell for sure from the pictures...
