I noticed that the peghead of the used Eastman EBJ-WL1 had some varnish runs off the headstock's top points and down the rear of the headstock a slight distance. This wasn't very nice to see and I wondered what it would have taken the person who did the varnishing at Eastman to have done a better job: Perhaps an extra five seconds of time to get the spray or brush volume adjusted to leave a smoother finish?
