Anyone have any input on whether there is a difference between Deft and Mohawk Lacquers. I am working on a mahogany tele deluxe, also posted under Tele Deluxe, Firs Build hoping for the best." I have stripped the body and neck back to the wood after having some serious blushing problems. I suspect I may have been too impatient, applied too heavy and too frequently, and not not waited long enough between coats, applied too heavy and too frequently. I am also wondering if my use of the Mohawk Lacquer could have contributed. I see a lot of mention about using the Deft in many of the boards. As my first project I certianly have learned a lot of lessons, some of which were already explained here. I am back to grain fill and want to do it right this time. I have done black grain filler, waited a week, sanded, and will be starting the clear grain filler, as recommeded, tomorrow when it arrives from Stew Mac. I am using the oil based grain filler they sell.
