Jazzmaster Finsh

This is a Warmouth Mahogany Jazzmaster body that a client brought to me to get finished. I applied sanding sealer to fill as much of the grain as possible, otherwise the finish wicks in to the pores of the wood. I applied 2 coats of nitrocellulose lacquer then let it cure and then applied 2 more coats and again and again scuff sanding in between coats. After a total of 8 coats I final sanded with 1500 then 2500 wet paper then buffed out with ultra fine buffing compound. Wrapped and waiting for pickup.

The grain on this body was fantastic and the finish really made it pop. I was very happy with the way it turned out.
