I am proceeding with the brush on lacquer process and have applied 2 coats on the entire guitar.  I got sloppy, I made streaks, I left globules, all due to haste.  I sanded back these first two coats on the back only, then applied a coat of lacquer with only a few smooth brushstrokes, applied a bit thicker than the last applications, and did the back only.  This is a test to see the results of this technique.  If appropriate, I will then do the sides, wait until dry, then repeat for the top and the neck, in that order.
