How would I go about getting a satin (non-gloss) mahogany finish like this?

    Can't be doing with a gloss finish - I'm after a smooth, silky finish, can still see/fell the grain.
    1. What product would I use for this?
    2. Would I still need to grain fill?

    Many thanks...

    Be carefull!!! 4O (0000) steel wool can gently take a shine off. I've done that to the back of some necks to make it easier to slide.

    Don't try it with an expensive guitar. I'll have nightmares.
