Mickguard Posted July 17, 2005 Report Share Posted July 17, 2005 Why can't I find this info with the search function? I've sanded down the tele l'm modding to the sealer coat --it's transparent, the wood underneath looks nice. I'd like to bring out the grain in the wood a bit more --when I wet the guitar, it looks pretty good, and I'm assuming that's the result I'll get with the clear coat. But I'm wondering if there's not a way to color the grain or otherwise make it more dramatic -- I'm thinking either by deepening the brown or maybe adding some cherry/red Is it possible to do this over the sealer coat? What kind of stain should I use? Another reason for deepening the color is that the sides of the guitar have a kind of 'pinto' look to it --the wood's lighter in parts....doesn't look bad, but it'd be nice to even that out. (The pinto is only on the sides --I carved a belly contour into the back, and the wood is a solid color there--even when it used to be pinto) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
