OK, so (some of) the pro's glop on epoxy to fill the pores. Sand off the epoxy, put on another coat of epoxy on. Sand. Spray on a finish, sand it, reapply, sand reapply...... Whats the magic????
On level surfaces never use your fingers behind the sand paper. You need to use sanding blocks. A light touch is required. Sand the finish, not the wood. It can be done. Like everything in Guitar build, repair, restore it takes work, tenacity and patience. It can't be fast and sloppy. If the wood is stained it can be next to impossible to match. Time for a Black guitar?
A heat gun? No way in my book.
