Long over due Update: Found out about Crimson Guitars and their stunning stains and Finishing Oil!!!! sooooo This black is coming off all over (by hand) Next up is the top and sides. Then i will do the neck. Goig to do the neck, headstock, back and sides as a dark cherry red blend with a few of the other stains in with it (coats) Then the top is going to be a dark monochrome/black style stain. The red should pop beautifully against the dark monochrome top. I need to order 1 final stick of luminlay to finish these side dots. Then im going to sand and restain the fretboard with their black and cover the entire thing in about 4-5 coats of their finishing oil. Anyone got any idea about how i can apply the Fender waterdecal if im using finishing oil?. Can i just add it to the headstock after 2 coats, then do more finishing oil coats over it? target aesthetic is the chapman Ml3 Bea but this will have a darker top and the entire back and sides will be that dark red.
