    Hi Matt. Dingobass used to lightly wet sand with 600 grit to smooth it out. I use 1500grit if needs be.

    you cant see it on the image i dont think it looks like very small granules and i am sure its not dirt. i used the same container to put my second coat of stain on the neck and the container had dried up...i should have used a clean container so i think ive put some dried up stain granules on with the second coat. any idea how to smooth it out or remove it please Frankenwashie?

    Hi Matt, sorry i only just caught up with this. I see Andy40 has already posted what I would have recommended, a very light wetsand with 600 or 800. Just a couple of passes with the paper on a hard cork block or similar.
    that should either clear the bumps, or tell you if you've got a bigger problem to deal with.
    Go in one direction only, and rinse and clear your paper every couple of strokes. If it goes away then all good, you can move up to 1200-1500 paper to get it really smooth. Hope that helps
