Alright! 2 coats with clear lacquer is applied. maybe i will start to sand it down tomorrow or the day after tomorrow, depends how dry the lacquer is. How many coats with clear do you recommend?

Is this nitrocellulose? Sorry I couldn't remember

I seem to remember doing two or three cans of clear when I have done em before, and if it's nitro you wsnt to leave it for a month!

This is looking amazing by the way, probably my favourite restoration on here

the paint is acrylic car paint. i did only made 2 coats, don't want the lacquer to be to thick.

Oh tanks alot that you like my project=)

i have wet sanded the guitar and started to polish it yesterday, it looks pretty sweet i think, but need to polish it a bit more.

Just came across this thread. Am mightily impressed with the OP's skill and the quality of the restoration. Kudos, sir!

I must admit, my heart went pitter-pat when I saw that neck break – what a great save. And the color is lovely. I hope you find the pickups you need or are able to make them yourself.

I will surely be following along to see the end of the restoration.

Woao, such a cool project :)
Do you like tort guards? I think it would look killer on this guitar!

I am in total awe of the work being done here. Big thanks to the OP for sharing this project with us. Can't wait to see the final product.
