Hey UG,
I'm doing a fretless finish on my guitar with system 3 epoxy. i just wanted to ask you how many coats should i look to put on and with what grit sandpaper to i use in between coats.

You could get away with one coat. For sanding it, you'll need to use a fine grit andpaper. Maybe start at 220 and then work your way up to 800, or higher.

I also think it would be better to do one coat. You don't want the epoxy to affect your tone to much, and i don't know if epoxy ataches well to epoxy

i would suggest using wood filler, that's what i'm doing for my fretless, you don't have to worry about sanding, and im using a dark wood finish to make the product look like ebony, so all the fretboard is the same color.

Wood filler won't do shit to protect the fretboard.

^that's why i'm putting finish over the sandable filler, then running wax over it (trust me it works)
