These are high end guitars finished usually in full gloss.

I do these for Martin under warranty and I get nervous every time one comes in. Two are currently sitting in my shop waiting to be done.
If youre willing to give up a secret, may I ask what you fill binding gaps with? I know, there shouldnt be any, right? . For whatever reason they sneak by, Iíve been told to use thick CA, but resisted. (Talking nitro finishes) I found on cheaper guitars that clear nail polish is perfectly suited. And since its laquer, it blends invisibly when scraped and buffed. Any thoughts?
