Advice On Clear Coats, Please


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I wonder if I can get some help with my first real project guitar? I'm building something like a Gibson SG and I'm up to the clear coats. I have some gloss Varathane and some high gloss Benjamin Moore acrylic urethane varnish. I'm not sure which will be better to use. Is there much difference between the two products? The Varathane will be easier, but it's meant to go on wood and I'm putting the clear over the top of colour coats. The colour coats have been done with an interior latex paint.

Also, when it comes to the sanding and such, is it a really bad idea to sand water-based clear with wet sandpaper? Can I wait a few days or weeks and then do it?
