So, I'm thinking about how I'm going to finish my thinline body (as shown here: http://www.tdpri.com/threads/nbd-the-epic-thinline-partscaster-build-begins.782700/). I want the top to match the back a little better, while still accentuating the flame maple. For many years, I've had a thing for old 335-style Grecos with walnut finishes, so I'll try to go for something like that. This is a picture of what I'm imagining it should look like. Any advice for how to achieve this kind of finish with the body I have? I'm thinking of staining it black and sanding it down to bring out the flames. Then a thin coat of some kind a amber stain, followed by a dark walnut stain. Lastly, I'd sand some of the walnut of to let some of the amber shine through, and finish it all with tru oil. What do you think? Am I on the right track, or am I over complicating things? I have no previous experience with finishing guitars. I have a couple of cheaper maple necks that I will use for practice before going for the real thing, so don't worry that I will jump at the body right away. I just want some advice as for whether I'm taking the right approach here.
