    Default Finish on a guitar body

    Hi all, I wanted to share a finish I am putting onto a guitar body. Telecaster shape made from Australian Red Cedar. I sanded to 2000 grit initially. Then I applied about a dozen or so coats of WOP (made by myself), First two coats were buffed in with 2000 grit W&D so it sort of wiped any excess back into the timber again. Then after that each coat was wiped on with soft rag and a very light rub of 2000 grit W&D between coats.

    I then gave it two days for drying and I then used a bottle of Behlens Buffing Polish I bought a couple of weeks ago. Applied it lightly cutting in with 0000 steel wool and then buffing/polishing by hand with a soft rag.

    The finish is amazing, I hope these photos do justice.

    Paul
