    I'm making my own Tele-style partscaster and have been trying to order ReRanch's Butterscotch Blonde Lacquer for a while now but they're still on Thanksgiving break and take a while to ship. Unfortunately, I need the color asap and so I was looking into Ohio Valley Nitro's Butterscotch Blonde. I was wondering if anybody had any experience with it as some of the Amazon reviews said it was way darker than what you'd expect and was more of an amber. Also, if anyone has any ReRanch alternatives or knows if RR will be available soon please let me know

    Behlen's has rattle cans. You could prime the body with BIN and then us Behlen's Tinted Amber clear to dial in the shade of BSB you want. The primer coat can be opaque or semi transparent, it all depends on what look you want.

    There's a woodcraft in Woburn, MA. They sell the Behlens and . . . .

    Another alternative might be a non-nitro finish using General Finishes Milk Paints (water based). Again you can make up the shade with some SnowWhite milk paint and either some yellow milk paint (with a pinch of brown for a vintage look) or some yellow dye (also with a pinch of brown to give that vintage look) Top coat can be a number of things including nitro or one of the General Finishes top coats.

    Honestly, the one above doesn't look anything like Fender's blonde once it's aged. The Logan finish looks like a clear finish with some amber stain - no pigmented coating at all.

    Yeah, there is a difference between Re-Ranch "Butterscotch" and "Butterscotch Blonde." The Logan looks more like Butterscotch which I don't think is what the OP is looking for.
