I’m thinking of putting together a Jazzmaster with a “Mary Kaye” style blonde finish on a swamp ash body. I’m planning on buying the nitro from this guy and following his tutorial here: http://www.manchesterguitartech.co.uk/2012/12/16/new-build-mary-kaye-stratocaster/ However, I’d like to get a slightly more vintage-accurate finish by making the sides more opaque. I was wondering if anyone might be able to advise me on how to go about doing this. I’ve had two ideas: - Spray a bit more of the white blonde nitro on the sides, or; - Before spraying the blonde, spray some white nitro primer on the sides. Would either of these approaches work? If so, how do you make sure the transition from the more opaque sides to the more transluscent centre is smooth and “natural” looking?
