Buffing a Long Necked Annie Top

     Today's project was buffing the top of guitar shown below.  It's a Long Neck Anne.  The original size and shape was designed to my daughter, Anne's, taste.  This guitar will have a much longer neck than it's prototype.  It will have an unusually small scale fretboard, the neck will meet the fretboard at the 16th fret instead of the 14th or 12 which is the usual on most guitars.  
     The picture immediately below is prior to buffing the top.


     I included the shot below for people who wonder what a buffer is.  If you are wondering if that is highlights, as apposed to dust, on the buffer...assume you are right.


     This is the top after a little buffing.
