Thanks all.

I bought the body and neck on the cheap on Ebay. Refinished the body in nitro lacquer myself. The neck was unfinished. I epoxied the neck using about 10 applications of SystemOne bartop epoxy that I bought from Woodcraft.

That is way cool. I am getting ready to yank frets on my longhorn and was thinking of coating it.
