    no, I think of this as butterscotch blonde:

    you can get closer to this color with "ruby" shellac, which only looks red in the jar: when you put it on the guitar, it's a deeper yellow

    I think you could get close to the color above with a mixture of ruby and garnet shellac -- but I haven't tried that

    The mixol tints I ordered will not be here until after Christmas so I got on with what I had on hand.

    My recipe

    After 16 drops of mixol #25 it looks a lot like milk

    Three drops of colortone vintage amber after mixing

    Three passes of eggnog color lacquer on scrap pine.
