When the warm weather is here, I plan to build a small, dust proof spray booth, just to finish that guitar.
I suggest you plan out a dust proof spray booth for your project.


In the basement of a 150 year old house, I think that's sound advice.

Ain't that the truth!
I have a LP project waiting for warm weather. I tried clear coating during January, and kept getting fine dust in the finish. It was stirred up by the kerosene heater, plus fish eyes caused by the particles of kerosene.

In talking with a few people at work, it sounds like one of the biggest challenges is the balance between ventilation and dust control. Meticulous prep sounds like a close second.

Do you want a red guitar that you will be gigging and is going to get some road wear on it right away, or do you want a guitar that looks like it was dipped in liquid glass that will sit in a stand all the time?

Two different processes!

Get you process sorted out on the scrap wood first.
FYI: lacquer will boil up enamel if you paint over it, so be sure it's sanded clean.

I liked "Tele-parter" to distinguish it from a Strat made from parts.

Of course, they are interested in promoting their own products, but the info is rarely brand specific. I have dealt with them off and on for many years now and usually been quite satisfied. As you are likely figuring, doing a good lacquer job takes some time and practice to learn. At the very least, you will probably want to buy some extra material and practice on some scraps before applying a finish to the actual guitar.

BTW, we usually say 'Partscaster' not 'Tele-parter', but, who knows, maybe you can start the NBT - the Next Big Thing. 8) HTH.
