Oh, happy day! The good news is that I've finished clear sanding the topcoat and am starting the polishing process. The bad news is that folds of my sarong have left creases in the finish. This is a clear sign that the lacquer has not hardened completely. So I'm hanging this baby for a few more weeks before going any further. By the way, a new nut has been installed and the two loose inlays (1st and 3rd frets) have been reglued. Here are some pics.
