I'm thinking about making a tele out of beetle kill pine. Fungus carried by the beetle infects the wood and turns part of it a blueish color, but doesn't affect its hardness. here's an example of what it looks like: Does anyone have experience with finishing this type of pine? I read that most finishes will turn the blue much darker to gray, which might still look OK but I'd like to understand my options. I'm on enough of a budget that I don't want to go get one of each of every finish option available if I can avoid it. I want to see the grain obviously. In fact I'm shooting for a "natural" look with very thin finish.
