Refinish A Refinish Attempt

Recommended Posts

A 60's hollowbody I recently picked up has had a another clearcoat application applied. I don't know when it went on, but it is poorly done. Some body areas were issufficiently covered, and there are some splatters that are mainly visible at an angle with light. I want to improve this situation.

Suggestions as to best method for a new clearcoat. (Over a light burst finish).

Since I don't know the first finish material, nor the second clearcoat material, I'm thinking a polyurethane.

Prior to this I imagine I need to use very, very fine sandpaper or 0000 steelwool to even and make the surface matte. (Let me know, if and where I'm going wrong here.....). Finally, a good quality spray of new clearcoat. May need to repeat process.

Thanks in advance for reading and giving any suggestions...including brands to use.
