Almost back to where we were on the back finish, 1 more wetsand and coating

All inlays blackened


SETUP
 


I don't know what you mean about tuners, this is a matched set of 1920s Planet's with matching spanner nuts
 


I measured what you had on it, but did not put an 11 on the D string it felt way to light
Change it if you want on next change

Buffed some of the light scratches on resonator
 

Tuned to pitch, no issues
 


It's settled back in and ready to go back home
 


 


 

Thanks for watching
