    If the wood's bare, a coat of sealer is definitely something to do, but as far as primer, it depends on the type of paint you're using.

    yes put a sealer on it, deft sells a sanding sealer that you can get in bulk for a spray gun or in an aerosol can it works great, also if you can't find that you can use their (Deft) semi-gloss wood finish it can be used to seal also.

    A couple of months ago I read this topic in the forums and followed the suggestions and it came out great. (Even impressed the wife ) I just did a 5150 neck for the fun of it the past weekend (if I screwed it up it was going on a old body). I used some sand sealer and then krylon paints and worked out really well. Now I am going to order a body and go from there. I am starting off small and going from there.

    Also I would like to thank Rol and everyone else for answering all my questions.
