Hey guys,

I am about to start building a EVH VH1 (Black and White) guitar and i'm trying to understand the whole process.

I am stuck a little on the beginning, I cant understand the process of sanding, grain filling, and sealing.

I understand what sanding is but I dont quite undestand what grain filling and sealing is and what goes after what.

Any help?

Thanks

Use grain filler on something like mahogany to fill the pores. then sanding sealer to give a uniform base for finishing.

1. Sanding,
2. Grain filler,
3. Sanding sealer,
4. Wet sanding (medium grit),
5. Clear coat or paint,
6. Wet sanding (high grit),
7. Buffing/polishing.

Obviously, you wouldn't necessarily bother with grain filler for an oiled finish, and you wouldn't use sanding sealer.
