A question about paint
I wanted to ask a question about paint. I have remodeled several guitars, never made one
from scratch but I've gotten pretty close, any way. What I always get screwed
up on is the finish. I can't get that hi-gloss look. It's like the paint always
soaks up all the shine which is fine for flat colors but I have a PRS that I
want to repaint. My question is this. If I were going to do a transparent
finish what should I use and what is the best method for applying it?

Take a look at www.stewmac.com There you will find clear lacquer for wood. If you are finishing a more
pourous wood like mahogany, you should use the filler/sealer. If it is hard maple then the laquer alone
is sufficient. You spray several thin coats and sand between each coat as soon as it ias dry enough to
sand to a white powder. Each time you will notice the grain fills in until the last time
you can not see any pours at all. Then you can buff it out and get that supper
high gloss mirror finish. On the web site I show above you can find everything you need to get
a pro job. Hope this helps you. These all come with good instructions.
Hello, this is Rick Andrews owner of Andrews Guitar and a long time member of EvO:R. This section has been
put together to help you with your guitar related questions. I did not agree to do this
so I could simply plug my guitars, I did this so you could finally have answers
to many of those burning questions you may have had about your guitar.
We will discuss anything related to the guitar, so if you have a question about guitar
construction, neck action, string height, pickups, simply send it to me and I'll answer your
question on this open forum. Questions or comments email: firstname.lastname@example.org
OK, I do get a small plug!
