This is my main guitar, made from straight grained, quarter sawn pine, with fairly subtle grain-lines. The base stain is yellow, and evenly applied. After that had soaked in and dried off, I re-wetted the body and from a height, sprinkled mahogany water-stain, which was in a crystalline form, over it. This then bled out a bit as the whole thing dried, after which I rubbed off the remaining Mahogany stain lumps, and finished the surface with a few coats of oil. Rubbing in the oil did not smudge the stain, and sealed it enough that I don't get any colouration coming off onto my clothing.
It was the first time I tried this technique, and I'm fairly happy with the result.
I read the title and thought this was gonna be a thread about worn guitars...definitely getting senile
I got one
Not stained but dyed.
Which wanted to be:
but stuff happens.
Duuuuude! That is one wicked looking finish! Absolutely superb. Beautiful guitar!
Although I’ve seen it before, that is a beauty Bill. Yours was way first before mine, but the back reminds me of my Route 66 Esquire build.
Oak on walnut stains, finished in a hand rubbed buffing oil. Front was oil straight onto the bare wood (pine ply) after sealing.
And while I’m here, here’s my Redwood burl veneer Tele on Cypress body. Oak stain finished in Poly.
Simple water based minwax stain. sand for effect.
Just finished this the other day. Used ColorTone dye from stewmac (amber in middle and tobacco on the edge) in water and spread it around with a sponge/rag. First attempt at a clear finish. Body is Alder from KNE. Neck is, I think, a Musikraft neck similar to the Charvel ProMods that I had bought years ago.
