First, I want to thank this community for all of it's help. I have learned so much about refinishing my tele! So, I have run into problem after problem with this project, but all of them, I can manage to live with (for example, I wanted a nice, mellow blonde tele, but it mixed something strange with the laquer and it become a more pronounced blonde. I still like it though, so, all's well). My problem here is the strange shiny spots you see. They seem very random and possibly underneath the surface (?) My fear is that I'll sand to try to get rid of them and then accidentally completely sand through the laquer! Also, in the second picture you can see a furrow towards the bottom (a little thread made its home in my guitar) - is there any way too make it less noticeable? So, I have two questions: (Aside from what I already know from Reranch 101) 1. How do I go about sanding/polishing/finishing this? 2. What do I do with the furrow? Ahh, help would much be appreciated!
