So, I own a douglas shadow-beuatiful instrument. BUT, I repainted it to be like an LP studio. Wine red, covered the binding... Reliced the back of the neck... AMAZING. But I want it to dry, because I need the guitar tomorrow. Could I bake the guitar in an oven to help it dry faster? I'm brushing on minwax Polyurethan, if that helps... Oh, and any way to maximize gloss? Thinking about wet sanding with 800, 1000, 2000 grit auto sandpaper, and then buffing with rubbing compound... Any ideas?

Don't bake it. You'll more likely soften the glue used to hold the thing together.

Wet sanding, however, is definitely a possibility.

Your guitar is made of wood with a (curently soft) plastic coating. What do you think happens to wood and plastic when you put it in an oven?

Yeah.

Don't do this, unless you want to write your guitar off permanently.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

Wtf?! An oven is like 300 degrees minimum. Maybe if it was like 120 or something that doesn't melt plastic and turn wood to charcoal.

But even then, you might serious warp the neck of the guitar by introducing it to such heat. Stick it in front of a fan, maybe that will help speed up the process.

Hey guys, I'm talking of 140 degrees or so, with a bolt on neck guitar... :p

Still no.

Anyhow, I already put it back together... You can read my thread "Buzzing MORE when I touch the strings?" if you wanna help some more. I mean, DAMN. This is a Headache... :/
