John what is the process to sanding it out? Wet sanding?
Also after that are you then done with spraying it anymore?

Are you liking this process and result better than your previous experience with Minwax Wipe-on Poly?

I level sanded on Monday and had to do a final top coat the finish is as good as I ever saw with rattle cans. I leveled with 800 1200 1500
then applied 3 coats Monday night 1 hr apart
I also started the headstock and neck
