Tele Finish

Recommended Posts

hey guys I am finishing a tele butterscotch and I am on my 7th coat of laquer and I keep having sand throughs on the edges all the way to bare wood and I don't know what to do I keep having to take a paintbrush and try to fix it and its not working that great and it really wories me to try and do final sanding and polishing what should I do.

What grit do you begin wetsanding with? I start with 600 grit, nothing coarser than that. If the lacquer was laid down thick enough (but not TOO thick :D ), and allowed to cure for a reasonable amount of time only a few swipes should be necessary to sand those areas to a uniform finish. Then I continue with 800, 1200, 1500 and finally 2000 before polishing.
