Hey everyone, I'm back after a leave of absence for school! So I'm going to get started on my next project which I will be building a Basswood Guitar kit. Now I know Basswood is a soft wood which is where you guys' help comes in. What is the best way to protect Basswood when painting the body with acrylic paint? I've heard of epoxy or shellac used as an initial coat but I don't know how well acrylic paint would stick to that or whether either of the two finishes will lift the acrylic paint. Would just a few of topcoats of poly be enough to protect the guitar?
Hey all, so I was at the hardware store the other day and while looking at wood finishes I decided to just use satin ploy for the neck rather than some exotic finish I wouldn't be certain would work. So here's the problem, I have an unbound neck, (Mahogany) so I have (engineered admittedly) rosewood from the fret board hanging off the side. Will the ploy affect the two woods differently, especially where they are glued?
