So I'm going to be starting a bass building project pretty soon. I'm not going to be cutting any wood, pretty much all assembly stuff. Screwing stuff together, and a little wiring. Nothing I haven't done before. Except for one thing, which I am kind of nervous about: the finish. I'd like to be able to put a clear lacquer on a Warmoth ash body, but I'm worried about the possibilities for major screw up. I have a paint sprayer, I have paintbrushes, but what is the best way to apply such a finish without getting big globules or major drippage? And what kind of lacquer would I use? I'm trying to take this slow, I don't want to lose a bunch of money in this messing up. I haven't even bought the parts yet, I'm in the research phase. Just looking for some helpful info. Sorry if I sound like a total newbie, it's because I am. The only thing I've ever done is pickup wiring. Sorry for intruding on you luthiers' turf here, but I'd like to take a chance and see if I have what it takes.
