    That's really outstanding, Dave!

    For the record, I'm 62 going on 63 in three months and just started building guitars a few months ago just for fun. And I can't really even play them! Age is NO barrier! Enjoy!

    Sorry man, didn't see your question till just now. I used the Rustoleum 2X clear gloss. I really wanted to use auto products since the flash time is so quick but I couldn't find a color match I liked between the body and the paisley. I didn't want to mix a lacquer top coat with enamel body. The Rustoleum isn't a bad product it's just the flow is so heavy if you're not really careful you'll get runs.
