I will be attempting to paint my first alder body partscaster next week. Dupli-Color Perfect Match Olympic White (Acrylic Lacquer) Will do slight relic (similar to later Road Worn models or an MJT closet clean). What can I do to protect the color coat, but also preserve the guitar from aging/yellowing too soon? I know it will yellow a bit over time, but trying to keep it as white as possible Applying clear lacquer will yellow it faster A UV-Resistant clear, such as Deft, may remain soft and take a long time to harden No clear = Color remains white BUT faster wear and tear Maybe more coats of color? Very thin layer of clear? Any other reliable UV resistant products? Going for a satin/semi gloss vintage look, and would like the body to wear/relic naturally with use. Here is an example (but less checking): What options would you consider for this project?
