The lacquer and varnish have cured for eight days and are ready for final sanding. For this process I use 2000 grit wet/dry paper. I soak the paper in water with two drops of Murphy’s Oil that serves as a lubricant. The wet sanding decreases the loading of the finish on the paper and this reduces or eliminates scratching of the surface.
I will let the guitar dry for two days before I buff out the lacquer. Today I orderd a nice hardshell case from TKL’s Professional Series. We are getting close Dan so start warming up your fingers.
