Two quick questions:
I want to put a label inside my guitar. Anyone know a source for pre-made blank labels?
Can anyone recommend a good source for French Polish DVD?

I make my labels with MS Word and print them on nice beige paper (my company's letter stock). With Word you can do borders, any font you want, import graphic - pretty simple. I put the s/n on each one, save it, then when I build another, bump the s/n and print it out.

As far as FP instructions, there are a bunch of Youtubes, Google is your friend. There is also a dvd at StewMac and I think at LMI also.

For the best and easiest french polishing process, go to Robbie O'Brien's online classic guitar building course.

You can buy all of it or just the finishing section. He does the whole finish in real time.

Plus 1 on Robbie's FP section out of the classical guitar course. It is the clearest, most devoid of magic, straight forward method I have watched. You get to watch him FP the entire guitar including all of the tricky areas.
