bisonlespaul59 Posted August 18, 2005 Report Share Posted August 18, 2005 Ok, so i am in the process of planning to build a telecaster. The guitar goes as follows, 1 1/2 inch African Mahogany body 1/4 flame maple top Standard tele shape i want to do just a clear untinted finish on the back and sides. Making the binding natural (think PRS). I thought this would be easy, but when i stain the top i figured that the stain would penetrate into the binding from the top. Making a fuzzy edge in my binding. What could i do to stop this? One of my friends said to clear the top, then mix the stain into a clear. Then spray that, then after a couple coats of that, clear over. The problem with this, i thought would be getting the top to stain evenly. Would that be a problem? Has anyone here down this? ANd if you did, what method of finish did you use? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
