Thanks, Rich! When I cut the pieces off the slab of Mahogany I couldn’t wait to bookmatch them because of the sapwood. A friend, who didn’t know any better, asked if I planned to stain that and see if it would blend in to match the rest of the guitar. I explained that look is desirable and he was surprised.

I like your quote. Obviously my tip isn’t a hard and fast rule but more a thought to keep in mind so we (I) don’t just give the finer grits a light whisk and call it good. Let them do what they are designed for and get a better look with any finish you use.
