I just finished painting my body. All that's left is the clear coats. But i also have to drill the strap button holes. Should i drill those before putting the clear coats on, or does it not matter?
I would do the holes after just to be safe.
drill after, if u drill before, the holes will be covered by the clear
I like to drill holes before painting. If you missplace a hole before painting it can be fixed easy if the guitar is painted then its not very easy. Also keeps you from worrying about chipping paint etc. And the clear will go over the hole but the screw will go right in.
