    '80s Peavey Patriot. On its own and with a brother.
    Same guitar, looks different depending on the light.

    What kind of wood are you wanting to stain?

    Yes I did, and thank you!
    I only have a few in progress photos that aren't very interesting. But here is a shot of the headstock. I made the neck out of striped Sapele, ebony board and SS frets.

    I use stains both to enhance wood and to change its color. Sometimes the finish that goes on top will be tinted, sometimes not. These have all had some level of staining

    CJT1775, that body is almost exactly what I’ve been looking for—hollow with humbucker in neck and single coil at bridge. Seems like all I can find routed for humbucker has 2, and the slanted control route. Looks like this also is hollow on the bottom as well.

    Did you have to custom order this route? Where? (Can you tell I’m a bit excited?). I’m actually thinking mahogany body w/ ash top, but this is close.

    Question-what are you planning for the f-hole? Looks like you’ve covered to keep it unstained...

    I did the green with artist oil paint, the brown wood is walnut, it has a very attactive natural chocolate colour.

    The blue guitar is my No. 1 and if I'm honest the colour isn't very inspiring but I like sounds it makes and I gave it a pretty cool shape.
