Brush-on makes it an option for me.

@tv101 Yeah that's what attracted me to the idea too. I don't really want to spray every guitar that i make or oil them, this product bridges that gap and gives great results from what I have seen online.

@tv101

Ask Darren to design one, it'll be CNCd out of 18mm plywood, but really ingenious.

You can always make a shiny surface satin or matt by sanding it back with some very fine wet and dry or a Scotch pad. 

@boo

The problem with doing that on a guitar is the player basically polishes it every time he picks it up, so that lovely even flat matt finish soon won't be.
 
That's why if you want a matt or satin finish that's going to stay that way, you need something with a flattening agent in it.

@jonhodgson What @darrenking can't do with a bit of 18mm ply isn't worth talking about.

@mattbeels Yeah you could probably handle a brush pretty well. 🤣👍

This stuff looks great, for me I’ve no option to spray it so hoping the claims that you can brush it on too are accurate.  Good to know from the video that it’s fine to put over oil finishes too.

I just sold this 4kw three phase blower on eBay! It could have run several hundred thousand air powered brushes!

@darrenking I do need to figure out how to insulate a shed/outdoor building properly so I can convert it into a proper spray booth with explosion proof extraction fan. I don’t just want to pack insulation in there, I may get problems with damp. Any ideas?

Yeah @boo. You could try using a brush, I heard that they’re pretty easy to handle. 😉
