Sand and seal, sand and seal…. After the first sealer is on, I make sure I don’t let any seepage go into the wood.
Next, I sand it until everything on the surface of the guitar is flat. I keep repeating the sanding and sealer so that there is absolutely no pits or scratches.
I do the finishing without having the fingerboard or the bridge glued in position. This makes it easier for me to finish the top without having to cut around any edges that the bridge or the fingerboard would be obstructing.
That is all for now! I’ll keep you posted on the progress again soon.
