Hi... Thomas... maybe you can help me: I've just paint my guitar in sonic blue. Unfortunately it's all ALMOST  perfect: a) I've a pair of drops (the paint was too liquid) and b) on the back a little zone with "orange peel". How can I fix this?

Hi Thomas!

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.  For some reason these profile comments don't really catch my eye with any notification message other than the listing on the right, top of the page.

Yes indeed, I love this stuff and just now a guy picked up his guitar and was thrilled with it.  Every day we have the ability to make someone's day and not many people can say that.  

I get the sense that your pretty passionate about Lutherie too and I always enjoy your posts my friend.  Thanks again for the very kind comments!
