mesadualrec Posted September 4, 2007 Report Share Posted September 4, 2007 Hi Its my first post here guys Im a resident member at the ernie ball and mesa boogie forum but, They dont specialize in building guitar talk really so thought I would be best asking here Im just about to buy a guitar body from a friend,its an Ibanez JPM style from monster guitar. It has a 3 quarter inch flame maple top on an alder body,and Im told it looks fantastic!!! here's my question; I want to finish the guitar myself as its both pleasing and cost effective What I want to do is either finish it in a bright pink/purple stain and the tung oil it or Just tung oil it and leave it natural whats the best way to do this I read that you need to apply a black stain first off and sand it or something to that effect,but do you just sand it so the Flames/tops are present and are more 'highlighted' than the darker patches between the flames and then apply the tung oil,and how should I go about that I thank you in advance any help is MUCH appreciated I hope to use this site ALOT in the future thanks guys Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
