RGGR Posted March 9, 2005 Report Share Posted March 9, 2005 (edited) How would you go about if you want to achieve this type of finish. This pic was added in pinned Strat build thread. http://projectguitar.ibforums.com/index.php?showtopic=9113 It was mentioned the guitar was painted black first, and then the grain of the Swamp Ash was filled with white Epoxy (clear Epoxy with white color tone added to it), sanding everything smooth again. Finished off with clear. Now my question. I understand the mention process, but would spray painting bass with black paint.....not have cluttered the pores/grain.........which detail you want to show with grain filled epoxy. So this got me thinking......wouldn't it be better to just stain the guitar/bass black.....then fill with white epoxy, and then sand down again. This way I wouldn't clutter and fill grain pattern with black paint so much........not sure if this will achieve nice back finish though. Just thinking out loud here.
