No longer a Ricken’cracker’

After part 1 the guitar was almost ready for spraying – only a final light sanding was needed. I masked off the binding and fingerboard and the guitar was ready for its first sealer coat. Scuff Sanding in between, it was given a further 3 coats. The last coat was sanded flat with 400grit and then sprayed first with a black basecoat then with the colour coat – a blue ‘pearl’. It was then given its final coatings of clear lacquer- again sanding between coats, this time using 800grit. When dry, it’s sanded with 1500grit and then polished to a high gloss and after final assembly the guitar is ready for Duncan.
