Hi guys. I recently purchased a nice alder Warmoth Strat body for a bit of a project. The grain on it is so nice that I cannot bring myself to cover it up at all. So I'd like to dye the wood. I've been looking at Briwax dyes, some local guitar players have used them with great results. Anyway, my question is more about clear lacquer. Once I've died the wood my desired colour, can I shoot some coats of clear lacquer over top? Once it's dry of course. I really want a smooth, glossy surface, with the nice dyed wood and beautiful grain showing underneath. Similar to this strat. Will the lacquer fill the voids in the grain and give me a smooth surface? Will the dye provide a good surface to spray the clear lacquer onto? Will the dye and lacquer react with each other at all? Thanks in advance for any help and info.
