That happens sometimes when the planets are in alignment. I had an archtop refinish many moons ago before I was tooled up to spray finishes. I was brushing varnish. I thinned the last coat a bit and it came out perfect right off the brush. Not one brush mark. I turned it over to the client without sanding and polishing and he was very happy with it.

Yeah, isn't that a great color?

Marcy & I saw Leonard Cohen on both of his last two tours. He always had top-notch musicians and singers backing him up. One of the guitarists had a LIME GREEN Telecaster with an ebony fingerboard and ivory pick guard and knobs. The color was like a lime sherbet or Popsicle, or a mint candy. It was drop-dead stunning!

I gave some thought to trying to duplicate that, but came to my senses and went with the color that I've coveted for many years.
