Finishing an alder body

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by The Chancellor, Jul 20, 2002.

  1. Firstly, I recently bought an alder P Bass body (brand new) and I have a few questions which are not answered on ReRanch.

    i) Do I have to fill the grain on a new body?

    ii) Is clear coating with lacquer essential?
