Hi fellers. I have made a guitar. I do not have access to a lot of finishing equipment, well I do have access a friend of mine sprays cars, has a booth, etc. But I don't want to use him because its going to be so much tedious back and forth to get my guitar sprayed with nitro/lacquer. Can I wipe on this lacquer(it is actually nitrocellulose spraying lacquer) or should I wipe on waterbase rubbing lacquer. I also have a question about the soundhole. It is an electric guitar but has a soundhole because it is a semi-hollow guitar. Should I finish inside the soundhole or leave it unfinished? Thanks.

Inside should be unfinished. This is achieved by inflating a balloon in the soundhole. You should have your friend spray some KTM9 since its waterbased.
