Is the lifting around the screw holes due to the water seeping in?

Tbh it's not perfect but it's a pretty good job given what you had, and it's inspiring me to try my own rattle can job.

Yes, it's even worse on the back. On one of the neck screws cracked the finish. :fp:
So, yes, it's far from perfect overall. On the other hand I possibly wouldn't dare to touch it after all that work if it had turned out perfect.

Don't worry, the colour is too gorgeous to stay focused on the liftings. If the cracks bother you that much, just go wild and relic it :ph34r:

Today arrived the last bit: a fresh set of La Bella Deep Talkin' flatwound strings. I can't wait to put it all together.

That color looks great! Nice job!

Question: how would one seal the screw holes before wet sand? I ask this because the same thing happened to me with a tele and it’s screw holes before.

Personally I would allow paint to get in the screw hole and wet sand before cleaning the hole out

Cool! I’ve actually been reading about it and people do that, a type of wax, mineral spirits instead of soapy water, or don’t sand at all and go straight to buffing.
