Hi all. Long time lurker, first time posting. TL;DR: Sanded down the headstock of an Allparts Polyurethane Vintage Tinted neck (TMVF) to bare wood. Need guidance on how to approach re-finishing/matching the color to the neck. Backstory: Working on my first tele partscaster. Ordered an Allparts neck, applied a waterslide decal, BUT ultimately was not happy with it (I failed to flatten the headstock area, and the decal never sit flush on the wood, leaving a very noticeable white film appearance). Unfortunately, I thought this would go away after applying my Minwax Poly Satin Clear (but it never did). After everything dried and cured, the decal appearance kept bugging me so I decided to start over. I sanded until I was able to remove the decal, BUT it left a really bad outline. Decided to sand some more around the area but ended up sanding through my bottom clear, exposing the maple wood. Everything went wrong. At this point, all I could do was sand the entire face of the headstock back to bare wood. The Question: How would you gurus approach getting this headstock back to a near matching color? The picture below shows the current state it is in. Dyes, Tints, Tinted Poly? Any particular color/mixture/product that you think could match well? *Would I need to stay away from the Nitro route on this one? Was eyeballing StewMacs "Aged Clear". Any help would be appreciated!
