    I had an old Harmony H-70 Meteor for years, I bought it at a flea market, never had a case, always got banged around but not abused... anyhow the finish was shot so I stripped it down to bare wood which was not good looking at all so knowing I would never be able to do the sunburst finish it had I decided to shoot it flat black because I love the look of the new guitar ls I see online in flat black. So, I shot it with about 10 coats from cans (I know, yuck but... I make due with what a have) and then shot it with about 8 or so coats of clear flat coat. It looks more dark gray than black. Should I have just used laquer with a real spray gun? I think the rattle cans were something like run of the mill Home Depot stuff.

    Why did you put clear on top? If you're just going to keep banging it around, I'd just go with the flat black. Every time it gets a ding, just spray the ding and forget about it.
