Sherri’s acoustic is almost ready to wet sand & buff.

After the final coat of nitrocellulose lacquer is applied to a guitar body, it’s imperative that it sits for at least a week before the final wet sanding and buffing. Well, Sherri’s custom acoustic has been hanging around drying for about a week now, so we’re anxious to get to it.

We’ll probably start on it tomorrow (8-July). First it will get sanded with 1000 grit and then with 2500 grit. Before the final hand polishing, the bridge will be mounted and the electronics will be put in.

Finally, after that we’ll buff it out with a wheel and finish it up by hand.

If you haven’t seen Sherri play live, you owe it to yourself to do so. Check out her website at
