Thanks, man. I used Duplicolor Acrylic Lacquer in the blue cans. I went with the cheaper-grade Duplicolor since I didn't need colors. I think they only make black, white, gray, and clear in the lower-grade.

Thanks for the props, friend! I wetsanded all the way up to 3000 grit paper (360, 400, 600, 800, 1200, 1500, 2000, 2500, and 3000) and then used Meguiars Swirl Mark Remover to polish it up. It's got quite the shine as I used alot of elbow grease when polishing. It's a patient, pain-staking process, but well worth the effort.
Also, thank you for the Gibson logo!

Legal Replica Guitars  
In light of recent cease and desist letters sent to certain builders by FMIC/Fender, I created a post on Halen.com's stance on the legal and fair-use building of replica guitars.
