So much to catch up on... Next up - polishing the nitro finish coat on my Warmoth JagStang body. I'm looking for a simplified process to save time, and to help prevent rubbing through the thin lacquer coats.
Polishing up the nitro clearcoat on a repainted, Fender Squier J. Mascis Jazzmaster body. The original "Antique White", body has been re-finished in a custom "Candy Apple Red". (Translucent Red over "Shoreline Gold").
