Just a quick update.
I have received the guitar back from the painters who applied the clear coat. I was going to attempt this myself with a spray can, however after trying my hand on a few test pieces of wood, I figured it would be best to spend a few bucks and have it done by a professional. Overall I am really happy with how everything turned out and I can’t wait to put everything together.
More to come soon as I wire up the internals and put on the finishing touches.
