I'm trying to recreate the vintage Danelectro copper finish. Most people recommend putting copper on a white primer, and if you look at worn copper Dano's you can see the white layer around the worn edges, but they seem to have a darker color than most coppers. Maybe it's the wear on the paint (sweat, oils, etc). Has anyone experimented with black as a primer? I've heard of silver as well. I would love to see any side by side comparisons, or maybe I'll just need to make and post my own. Thanks.
