  1. I want to apply an even amount of laquer to my guitar body so that it feels glassy-smooth like when it was original.  It was bought used with various patches of hardened goop over the neck and body which I foolishly (insanely) scratched away with rough sandpaper.

    To make matters worse I applied some laquer to the exposed wood parts in an attempt to "cover up" the rawness thinking I could fill in the blanks and everything would be ok.

    I have a can of minwax clear gloss spray which I'm sure is nitrocellulose.  I'm wondering if I should sand down the body and neck and then reapply some laqueur to get back the glossiness.  I'm looking for advice about how to refinish the guitar so I can undo the error of having sanded away the goop.

    Second Question

     The inlays on the guitar are also noticeable as I fret over them.  They seem to be sunk in when compared to the fretboard.  Is there any easy troubleshooting that can be done?
