Mike M Posted March 24, 2006 Report Share Posted March 24, 2006 I have done many guitars in the past, but the one I am working on could be the best so far. I am taking more time to make sure I don't screw anything up. In the past, I have used Pore o Pac filler for the mahogany. am considering try an epoxy pore filler this time. Is the epoxy stuff any good or should I go with the solvent based product? Secondly, I want to finish the guitar in a tiger eye color for the top and possibly stain the flamed maple neck the same color. I have read different posts here for tips, but never really seemed to find the consensus for that type of finish. I have tried staining scrap with black, sand it back and then going to a medium brown finish, sanding back, apply another medium brown coat, and the finishing it with a yellow/brown . It gets close, but not close enough. Any thing I am doing wrong? The color comes out more red/brown than the tiger eye color. Thanks for any tips you can give me.
