Movie here. Been a while since I was here. I've decided to go with natural on my 79 Strat that nice owned since 82. Four and a half years ago while my wife was pregnant I stripped it, unfortunately also the fullerplast. Well son was born and it's been in a box ever since. Now I'm just ready to clear it instead of trying to redo the sunburst as originally planned (not proud to say i painted and airbrushed it multiple times in decades past).
Anyhow....I'm leaning towards just giving it to my good buddy who's is a great autobidy spray guy. He's done a few guitars that ive custom airbrished for customers in recent years...usually with a high quality European automotive urethane. Never done that to natural wood though and I'm wondering if I should go the spray bomb nitro route? I also have NOT grain filled it. All I could find locally was old masters grand oil grain filler and I think I'm just gonna skip it unless I go the nitro route. This is just a player...years ago I did a hack job routing a recess for the floyd rose (long before manufacturers were recess touting their bodies!). I've cleaned it up recently but the recess is still bigger than it needs to be. My point is, this guitar is far from a perfect specimen. Thoughts? Walk me off the edge of auto urethane maybe? Lol
