I'll dry sand if the orange peel is really heavy, but usually only with 600 to flatten everything out. You got make sure things are cured out longer than usual or you'll clog your paper very fast. Sometimes that clog will pull or scratch too deep, and you may have to recoat to fix. Be careful with not much pressure

A guitar with a thin nitro finish will resonate better than one with a hard poly. But nitrocellulose is flammable and hazardous to inhale, so make sure you have a well-ventilated work area and use proper safety precautions, like wearing a respirator mask.

First you’ll need to solder together and tape off the north coil finish and south coil finish (this is the series link). Then, here’s a list of the items needed along with the StewMac parts numbers and amounts of the products we’ll use:


An important part of the finishing process according to them Laughing
