    Watco spray can lacquer clear finishing problems

    Hold your guitar body and use reflected light as a way to see the surface that your spraying .You need to see the shine as your spraying, that usually will be your best guide. I would try slower, but check the instructions on the can as to the distance that they recommend.

    Neil's Brotherhood 2021 build: The Starcaster project

    You could add a strip of canary wood as binding going from tip to tip of the headstock, that gash looks to be about 3/32", if you can make it small enough I think it would make a nice accent line . A nice little square . :)
