mesadualrec Posted September 5, 2007 Report Share Posted September 5, 2007 This is an addition to my last post, after the advice given on the last post I have came to my senses and decided that staining is not gonna happen...not by me on such a lovely top!! so I was just wondering if anyone could walk me through the tung oiling process The guitar is brand new from monster guitar and has not had any previous staining or finishing,its a blank 3 quarter inch flame maple on alder body,All it needs is sanding(this may already be done also) and oiled I have read several times that a black stain is required before this oiling so the flames/figuring pops more does this have to be done if I dont stain it??? also can the alder be left with the tung oil or does this have to be laqured (sp?) for more protection?? if nobody can be bothered posting all this info. is there anywhere you guys can direct me for this info.
