jhanH - please post some closeup shots of the finish when you’re done?

The second time I ever tried a refin I misunderstood directions and used huge grit paper and then spraycan white, several coats, and now you can just see giant deep scratches under said white. Looks horrible haha.

I’ve been genuinely impressed with some of the amateur refin work I’ve seen on here tho. I don’t remember who, but the guy who painted his JMJM Charcoal Frost and put the solar flare Spitfire on it immediately comes to mind. This is something I really would like to get into. I got a bunch of scrap wood over the summer to use for practice and it’s just in a big pile in the garage.
I'll post a few pictures one I have the guitar wetsanded and polished up. Right now I have other stuff to do but I can probably do that in a couple of weeks. Its not my first refinish, I've done a few before. Here is a tele I put together as a Mike Bloomfield tribute. Image

And a es335 I built from a Hosco kit

They look great. Great job on that ES335.
Any guitar i may be selling now or in the future will have the right amount of wear, and will not have ever been gigged with.
