I'm a little way off from finishing my first guitar, but I thought I should start to think about it. Because of my shop limitations, I will not be choosing a spray laquer, however, I am leaning toward a brushed on waterbased laquer. From what I read so far, KTM-9 seems to be the waterbased laquer of choice. (and the most expensive.) Stew Mac also offers a brush-on waterbased laquer from Colortone for about half the price.
I am interested to learn the recommendations from this forum?
