I commented on an earlier post about refinishing Squier matte finish to gloss. In the post I stated that I’ve had success by lightly sanding with 1000 grit and then spraying lots of coats of gloss poly and then wet sanding and polishing. Today I was intent on starting another such project when I had another idea. After the 1000 grit sanding I decided to go straight to the polishing step using semi- chrome polish. Well the result is a medium gloss, thin lacquer like finish. We all know there’s not much finish on these necks to start so it’s really thin now. I’ve included a pick to illustrate. The front half of the headstock has been done.
