OK, here I go.
Monday I got a guitar repair project ready to finish with black lacquer rattle can from Ace Hdwe.
Tuesday I hadn’t done the finish yet, was called away to get ready for cold snap but ran out of breath…. got an appointment for Wednesday at Dr. to see what the problem was, (again).
Tuesday night I taped up the guitar neck, used 3M blue tape, cleaned around everything making sure I had a good surface for the application of the lacquer.
(By the way, Ace Lacquer is a really cheap replacement for Epiphone Ebony Lacquer from Asia, Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia, etc).
Wednesday morning. I had the Drs. appointment at 09:30. I sprayed the lacquer just before we left so I could be back before about 11:00 and remove the masking and do the finishing touches.
Without my consent, the wife and the doctor conspired against me to send me to the hospital for two days.
Now I have a lacquer ridge line where the tape stayed on way too long.
How do I fix this and make it look right?
What I have done so far is remove tape, (Obviously),
Saw lines, ran in circles screaming like a little girl, until my breathing made me stop, didn’t call the person that offered me $250 for this guitar, and now am sitting in the fetal position, while I suck down beer after beer, mumbling to myself.
I have sanded the edge starting with 400g wet/dry. Went up to 2000 progressively.
No joy, it’s still obvious there is or was a line.
My next thought is to try a coat of clear to help melt into the line and smooth it out.
Does anyone have a better idea?
Remember, not too complicated. I have so many drugs in me right now I could make at least 1/5 of WoodStock happy!
