This looks nice. My technique after contouring the top is to take the dremel tool and sand away around the border to create a dip/lip. Then you sand to blend the difference. I use a black and decker mouse sander for that. Literally go to town on it until I like the way it looks. Only took about 30 min to do this part.
Then I hit it with mineral spirits and included the sides this time. With the pau ferro fretboard and tiger rosewood neck this thing is gonna look amazing.
