So I sprayed some clear lacquer today. So far so good and i do like it. I am wondering though if the redwood body should be blacked out. I have a lot going on with this guitar color wise. Mahogany and maple neck with ebony fretboard, redwood back and quilted maple top. The redwood and mahogany are close in color but definitely different, i am a big fan of natural wood grain in any project. Just thinking black might be better? Thoughts?
