Off camera, Andy has been in the spray booth. After masking all surfaces except the top, a tinted base coat has been sprayed on the top in preparation for the actual sunburst. After the sunburst pattern itself has been sprayed it is allowed to set up only partially. Then the dark lacquer is removed from the body edges and the rosette rings. In this photo, if you look carefully you can see that the inner ring of lines and abalone shell still has some dark lacquer on it.
