Classical Guitar Refinish

Introduction: Classical Guitar Refinish

so i had an old and cheap guitar, which i didnt really like. and i always wanted to refinish it. so one day i got this idea. why not go to the sea, fish some pina nobilis shells, cut the mother of pearl they have inside, and stick it to the fretboard?... and so i did. but with it, it came to me that i had to sand and refinish the whole guitar. so here it is.

    Great inlay work! Just a note - no one should ever do this on any vintage or rare / expensive guitar, even if you know what you're doing, it ruins the value sometimes by thousands. Great project for making cheap guitars really awesome though!

    bad thing i didnt take step by step pictures :/ although the pictures i took are from all along the process. like how it was before, how it was when i unstuck everything and sanded it, how i carved the fretboard etc.
