Xanthus Posted May 29, 2008 Report Share Posted May 29, 2008 And yes, I DID do a thorough search :D So anyways, I'm done with round 1 of grainfilling my build. I'm going to sand it with 400, then fill the grain again as a "just-in-case" coat. Here's the stupid question: Would I have to sand it after the 2nd coat before I tru-oil it? The grainfiller gives the whole guitar a beautiful amber patina, which I know I'll lose most of when I sand. However, I'm unsure whether leaving grainfiller on the body, not just in the grain, will prevent the oil from penetrating well. I don't want to lose that awesome amber shade before tru-oiling it. For reference, I'm just using run-of-the-mill Benjamin Moore filler. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
