dayvo Posted October 24, 2005 Report Share Posted October 24, 2005 I need some help! I am building my first guitar, a copy of a Les Paul. Body and neck Brazilian Mahogany, capping is Lacewood. I want to stain the Lacewood and possibly the Mahogany with some water based Analine Dyes which I purchased from LMII. I have seen Lacewood stained bright green and also bright blue on some manufacturers sites (US Masters Guitar Works being one) and I wondered if anyone out there could explain to me how this is done. I have been experimenting with scrap pieces of Lacewood and the color comes out much darker. I appreciate that Lacewood is not tremendously light in color to start with, as compared to the likes of North American Maple. I live in Oz and I was hoping not to have to bleach the Lacewood as I'm not sure if there is anything available here to do it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
