Just a question... I am currently working on my first Tele. It's a Swamp Ash from KnE Guitars... Thanks Mitch! It is going to have the butterscotch blonde finish (ReRanch nitro color and clear). Did Fender use a sealer on the bare body before the butterscotch was applied? I have heard they did NOT put any sealer on for the translucent colors?... Is nitro, nitro? I just bought a can of satin clear form WATCO and thought I could use this as a sealer???????? Is the WATCO nitro compatible with the ReRanch stuff??
