I've only had experience with Stewmac lacquer, and that was over a decade ago. Now I have to clear coat 2 necks, and 3 bodies. For the amount of aerosol lacquer that I'll need, the Stewmac product is just too expensive. Does anybody have experience with cheaper spray can lacquer that turned out well. I'm wondering if the el cheapo Rustoleum lacquer is any good. Thoughts? Thanks. Stewmac seems to be getting a little out of hand with their prices. I just looked up a micro mesh sanding kit on their site, and they wanted $25 for the kit, and that did not include the additional cost of shipping. The same damned kit, on Amazon, with Micro Mesh themselves as the seller, was only $16. When does a store charge $9 more than ordering direct from the manufacturer. That seems ridiculous.
