I was just wondering if there was enough Target Coating forum members to form a guitar finish section. Is there really enough interest? I'm sure into something like that.
I would think that there would be more and more instrument builders going to water base products due to safety and environmental issues. . I'm sure there is a lot of expensive equipment one could do without.

I thought I would put that out there.

Sure it's a good idea. but meanwhile if you don't mind the nitro hype and all the talk about rattle cans, there's a good finishing section on the tdpri forum for telecaster enthusiasts.

Count me in I suck at finishing but I am determined to make it happen
with water based products and these seem to be of the best thats out there
so I am going to stick with it and get the results I need.

The Official luthiers forum had a few EM6000 threads!

I just purchased my first HVLP sprayer and have the EM6000
I am going for a dull finnish thought I would try the matt finnish
Its a different look than most guitars.

I have three guitars in the works and have a only tried my hand at guitar finishing once before. I tried to brush on a water based lacquer the results
were terrible. So here I am giving it a second shot with a sprayer.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated ie: A finishing schedule

Ill keep posting my successes and mistakes. Hopefully we can get good
guitar finnishing thread going.

I have put down about six coats over two coats of sanding sealer and see a significant blue haze maybe I am putting it on to thick?
I am going to sand it down and try try again.

I too have been determined to make this water-based stuff work for me. I build too many guitars and I really really really want to do decent finish work. I learned a lot over at the Reranch forum and I've done a few (semipro) nitro finishes, but I must use less toxic products from now on.

Please see my plea for help in the Top Coatings section - "Witness lines?"

Any help would be much appreciated. I don't want to give up on this, but I don't want to keep doing the same thing over and over hoping for a different result each time. I've heard that's the definition of insanity.

Thanks!

I wonder what type of finishing materials would be great to use for an acoustic guitar. The front shell seems to be more apt with the use of none glossy point with the top layer giving it the luster it needs.

I am more keen with how I am going to set the back up because of some problems with paint chipping away. What are your thoughts on this approach?

Danielle,
Beautiful color on the strat.
What was your process to achieve??
I'm interested in doing a similar color with an anodized pick guard.
Need that semi-transparent look.
thanks,
Joe
