Yeah that was because of a little mishap while I was stripping. I am gonna do a little aging to it, not a lot. As you can see by her sister, I tend to get heavy handed. (But with my Gibson, a lot of the dings, dents and scratches were there already and the top is heavily figured so I didn’t want to fill it, but I wanted some of the top to show)Its got a cheek dimple. Are going to age it ? Not the dimple, the gold ...
I’m guessing it’s the little strip nearest the edge. It’s not too terribly thick, but the poly could stop a missile. The pen is pointing at the seam of the maple chunks that were glued together to make the top. View attachment 14641
There is one of these for sale out of Canada that the top had the veneer removed. You can see the strips of maple. Kinda reminds me of the Norlin finishes of the 70’s.

It was the paint. It was craft paint, not Krylon. I hit it with kryon this time after sanding. I’m done messing with it.What did you finish sand with before spraying? I’d recommend finishing with 400-800 grit paper. Shouldn’t have any problems adhering unless there’s a reaction to the poly.
