  1. Hi! I'm new to the forums! I'm repainting an old strat for my first practice project, and I was wondering if there were any Canadians here that could recommend where to buy a good quality stain. Best for the price I should say since this is just a first practice run.. I'm doing all this in an apartment so water based everything is probably the way to go for me. thanks a bunch!
  2. I am working on re-finishing my first guitar. I am using a water-based lacquer with added dye to add color (green) to the finish. What I am mostly concerned with is how to create a 'dark' finish over the original color without changing the color of the finish. I believe if I added black dye to the mixture it would simply change the color. Perhaps I should layer the finish - first add a number of coats of the dyed finish, and then add a few coats of finish with black dye? I do not think this will produce the effect I would like. Perhaps it is only a question of dark grain showing through that gives the guitar a dark finish. Seems that in the two pictures attached that both have grain showing through, but the blue guitar maintains a darker finish.
