so I had started this back in August. But got caught up in a couple other builds. I got mad at this for being ugly and made it uglier. That'll teach it.

Haha. There is nothing to break gently. I'm probably going to light it on fire soon.

I think clear looked best. Any chance you can go back to the start? or is it worth the effort (I don't know how much time you have invested)

Could you consider donating it to a local program for children that want to learn to play? If you don't want it (obviously).

It likely wouldn't be worth it. I was more just using it to play with different ways to finish because I didn't like it from the get go.

I'm pretty sure giving it away could be considered a hate crime against humanity. If anything I may strip it and re cut the ugly body into something either less or more ugly.

You should keep it blue and just call it the artists personal axe. You know, like a demonstration piece showing how tortured the artist's soul is.

You used a paint brush!?
When I was a kid, I watched a guy across the street paint his car with a roller.

I am sure many kids would could be proud owner of anyway.

Maybe just decorate it, adding some white stars... or "fleurs de lys" (see some frenchie ancestry flags).

I once painted a bicycle and later on the lower part of my car (the car was two colors), both with a paintbrush :
I used Varathane liquid plastic while the quart was bathing in warm water : the result was just perfect !
Not a paintbrush trace ! The drawback on a guitar could be that liquid plastic was quite easier than paint or lacker to scratch.

there was a surprisingly nice piece of wood hiding under that blue paint! Looks great just natural, get out the clear coat.

I didn't really expect to keep the blue I just wanted to test it out because I was mad. I'm home from a trip to Arizona so after Xmas I'll get back to work and wire it up
