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.
Last push to clearcoat my JagStang body, before I take a few weeks enforced lay off...
The clear nitro lacquer on "Dragoncaster" body has been curing for more than a couple of months now. Polishing can be a lengthy job, and I wanted to be able to set aside a few, consecutive days. With a suitable gap in the schedule coming up - it's time to crack on.
The light amber tint coats have had almost a week to cure. It's the effect I was looking for. Subtle, and not too yellowed - but definitely tinted away from the ash blonde look of the natural wood. A few more coats of clear lacquer, and I can look forward to polishing the Dragoncaster up to a lustrous shine.
I'm getting to the final stages of levelling the finish. A few more coats of clearcoat, and I should be able to set the guitar aside for a couple of months before it's ready to prep and polish up.
Back to the "Dragoncaster", and yet another stage in the clearcoating process. The lacquer drop-fills have cured and shrunk back. I hope the fills have done the job, and that I can start to look towards a final levelling of the overall finish.
