Hey guys, I know there's some of you can answer these questions for me. I'm just in the process of finishing 2 guitars. My plan when I started building was to have them finished by someone else, but I simply could not find someone who is local, easy to work with, and reasonably priced. I finally came to the conclusion that I'm just going to have to do it myself. I'm using Watco Lacquer, because apparently it is true nitro even though it doesn't say it on the can, and it's the only brand I can get locally without ordering it. I've also heard and read lots of good things about it. Anyone here try it? So, I'm getting along quite well, but I'm wondering how many coats I should put down before it's safe to wet sand? Also, would it be a good idea to do a couple of extra coats around any edges, to prevent sanding through it? I'm using rattle cans at the moment, but I have a can of "brush on", that can be sprayed if thinned correctly. I also have a HVLP spray gun, but haven't used it yet. Is it a huge difference going from rattle cans to HVLP? I assume the paint will be more finely atomized, and will go on smoother? I have more questions about polishing, but I'll hold off on those for now.
