    This looks cool, wish I had a spare neck hanging around.

    Oh boy, I sure hope that isn't polyurethane on there. Looks like it might be, though....

    It's mine..I'm not sure whether it's poly or not, didn't test it. Really just needs a good wet sanding and polishing to smooth it out. i'd like to keep it but I have waaay too many projects going on now. She's gonna be a good one though. I was going to make a period correct neck for it-Harry Eibert makes a killer repro neck as well,if you don't have the means to fashion one yourself and don't mind doing the final shaping of the neck and fitting of the dovetail..
