Got this just before the weekend. Put a lot of work into the sanding (it was pretty well sanded already) and into the staining and I've come up with a pretty good looking burst.
Should have taken some before photos
This top was picked as a 'light' amount of flame.
You can see the tenon extend all the way through the body to the bridge - once the neck is glued in (waiting on the titebond from Stewmac) I'll stain the tenon too.
I've discovered blue masking tape isn't perfect for keeping dye from bleeding under lines you want to keep razor sharp. You'd have to have some closeups to see, but the faux-binding edge is a tad ragged.
The 'vintage red mahogany' which was supposed to be around the adge has already become '59 les paul un-burst....oh well, not a bad effect in itself but not quite what I was shooting for.
