Someone I know is having difficulty applying nitro lacquer to a Cocobolo guitar top. The wood appears to be giving off oil into the lacquer coats- showing up as streaks in the layers of finish. Has anyone had any experience with this that might be able to offer advice?
At this point, he's considering sanding off the nitro and possibly sealing it with a coat of vinyl before attempting to refinish it.
Thanks,
David
