I just basically want to finish my guitar in a clear or maybe an oiled finish.

If it was clear i was going to get some of this: http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_206575_langId_-1_categoryId_165495 How many cans would i need to coat the whole body. And also what process do you recommend to apply it? Does anything else have to be applied before like grain filler or Sanding sealer?

This is my guitar

if thats the wenge build i am thinking of, you are going to have a bitch of a time finishing you. you will need lots of grain filler, then seal it, then probably 4-5 cans of that stuff to put on about 8-12 coats. i recommend using polyurethane, some say lacquer is best, and logically speaking thats extremely ignorant, people just like it because its old and traditional.

Thanks alot Lp yea it is the wenge build your thinking of, i posted a question in it but no one answerd for over an hour or so. So would i first grain fill, then sand, then some sanding sealer, sand again, then between coats keep sanding the lacquer? IM new to this lol, my first doing anything like this
