Wow. That looks sensational. I am planning the same route on my Tele Deluxe: Duplicolor Light Blue Metallic and Minwax Lacquer gloss clear. I have a gun but am using rattle cans because I want to use lacquer and not spend a lot on paint. I'll use the gun with the clear. What did you use as primer or sealer? I was thinking of spraying Minwax Lacquer as a 'sealer', sand that smooth and then color, finish with more Minwax Lacquer. I was considering this because while I had always planned to paint the body, its actually very nice wood grain naturally and I may choose to only paint the front and leave the back natural, or some variation.
