Guitar Is Now Stained... Sand Smooth Before Poly?

Recommended Posts

Go very light and use a sanding block. It's very easy to have lighter and darker spots where you sanded just a little more.

If you went heavy with the stain, it's less likely you will have this problem, the stain goes deeper.

My last guitar, I put the stain on heavy and went over it with 600 grit, just to smooth it up a bit. It makes the curly maple pop a little more.

very light!

p.s. if anyone has an answer to my poly over india ink question, please check out that thread, too!

Poly goes fine over acrylic inks, I use them quite regularly and clearcoat over them with no problem at all. I wouldn't imagine india ink would be any different.

Jim :D
