HumanFuseBen Posted February 9, 2009 Report Share Posted February 9, 2009 hey guys! okay, continuing on with my neverending ibanez rg7421 refinish project.... i've now sanded down the entire body, and have found to my great fortune that the wood doesn't look bad at all! its a 3 piece body, with the center piece being a somewhat dark half inch piece of basswood running dead on down the centrer of the guitar. its much the same way a lot of neck-thrus are. here's my plan... i want to stain that center strip a nice reddish brown, and stain the rest of the body with a green minwax stain that i found at Lowes. i was also planning on doing the old 'natural binding' trick around the edge of the body, using automotive pinstriping tape. here's my questions... will i need to use a sanding sealer first before i start staining? are there any precautions i should take trying to stain that middle strip? If i tape it off either with frog tape or automotive pinstripe tape will the stain bleed through? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
