Has anyone experimented with aqua fortis on curly maple on a guitar? It's the stuff the 18th century gun makers used on their Pennsylvania (Kentucky) rifles.

I just read on Wikipedia about Aqua Fortis and it seems to be quite corrosive. I don't think I would want to be playing with that stuff!

What a pain to apply and finish it seems (thank you YouTube).
