First time poster here, I have a 1969 Gibson that has been very abused, check it out here. http://s1108.beta.photobucket.com/us...yva/story/6543
If you looked at the story of it than you know I have it to the point of applying the finish. My question is; Since I applyed the waterbased stain directly on the bare wood (Mahogany) and plan to French Polish it what should I do about the raised grain? Thank you.
