Ibanez S520ex Refinish

Recommended Posts

Try not to use some 'plastic' finish. Like polyester is, used on maaany many guitars, especially cheaper ones. They mud the sound of the wood and total tonality is lost. The guitar starts to sound like plastic. Probably yours was before sanding it down.

For mine bass project I used acrylic and it's very good. Very satisfied, does not mud the wood at all, does not crack, looks good...

On some squiers I had to remove the polyester paint, recolor them from red to black and finished with acrylic. The guitar saw a new world in sound...

Polyurethane is good choice too, but if you have special requirements like UV protection and stuff.
