I just built a rear-routed, swamp ash strat and i've begun the finishing stage. I'm really happy with the results, as its the first body I've made incident-free, so I'd like a little advice on the finish before I go too far down the wrong path. I am shooting for the brightest transparent white i can achieve via a wipe-on stain. I purchased Minwax water-based white tint base from Home Depot and wiped a few coats... It's nice - kind of a slightly-brighter Mary Kay finish. I really wanted a brighter, transparent Arctic White finish though. I did a few tests on scrap and got really nice results by thinning Kilz latex primer with water. 2 coats on the sample pieces and the finish is exactly what i wanted. Do you think its a bad idea to use this on the Strat? I'll be doing a wipe-on minwax poly finish. Any advice? Thanks.
Just wondering, I have 1 gallon of titebond's white glue. I already glued my mahogany body blank with it. But now I'm starting to second guess myself. I know everybody here loves titebond's wood glue (yellow). Is the white stuff good enough? Should I change from now on and use only the yellow stuff? Even worst, should I redo my body blank with titebond 1?
