    Beeing a newbie on this about building kist and stuff like that I'm always learning, this forum is great because of that, however, reading some posts I saw one where somebody used zpoxy to finish(?) his guitar, never heard of that before so I ask, how to use the zpoxy thing? It's a substitute of the lacquer?

    Thanks!

    Thank you!

    The question is, what's next, once this is all filled, should I sand normally?

    This question belongs to "Glues, Fillers & Painting"?

    By far the best filler I've used. Really easy to work with.

    How hard (resistant to dents, not difficulty) is this? I know some epoxies stay relatively soft, while others get quite hard.

    Has anybody tried the epoxies designed for rotted wood repair? I would think they would hard/structural when cured, unlike the "bar top" epoxy finishes which stay somewhat soft.

    The Z-Poxy instructions say you can thin it with alcohol. Any advantage of thinning the first coat, so it soaks into the wood better?

    To me the advantage of thinning it a little it it's easier to level. It fills just fine.
