My son and I have been building his dream guitar and will soon be starting on the finishing. I have been spraying finishes for several years now but never worked with pre-cat before, does anyone know how spraying it compares to other finishes, I just bought a Earlex as my other gun had seen its better days. I almost always spray water based as its safer with my setup but am willing to spray about anything if it gives the guitar a more durable finish (and can be polished). The other finish I'm considering is GF's Enduro-var. Any thoughts??
Thank you and God bless!
Sorry for the long break. I noticed that my wood was not acclimated yet, then my parents came into town, then we went to visit a neighbor island, project for the wife and now finally back to my bench build.
This week I edge jointed all the top pieces and skip planed 6 boards for glue up. I have decided the best way to proceed is to do the glue up in sections. I am going to glue up 4 sections of 3 boards and 1 section of 2 boards. I think this will make the glue up process easier and hopefully have to do less hand planing after glue up. Without a jointer this is a bit of a challenge plus my bench top planer can only handle 6" thick stock. I am hoping that this will help me hit my final width of 24".
I wanted to glue up 2 of the 3 sections but I ran out of glue and barely made it through one glue up.
