Finishing Job

The painting of a guitar, especially an acoustic guitar, is a long and tedious process.
There is a large phase of wood preparation (sanding, pore filling) and several layers of varnish interspersed with sanding phases.
I work mainly with spray paint, polyurethane and cellulose coatings, sometimes also with shellac, mainly for repairs.

In my workshop, I have a painting booth with filtration and air purification that allows me to work cleanly, both for my health and for the environment.
This coating method allows me to produce very fine coatings in the range of 0.15 / 0.20 mm, whereby the wood has a great vibration capability.
