I love the body shape. And I think a very, very dark green would look cool.

I tried purple once, and it was pretty easy. I never used it on a guitar, just some scrap. Wood stains are really easy to mix. Give it a shot in a small quantity and check it on some scrap.

Sorry man, I totally forgot this morning!

Well the stuff I've got is:


Like I said, I've only used it on scrap, so I've never finished over it yet. The colours were great though. The Chestnut Products website says it can be intermixed easily, and you can use under most finishing products but care should be taken when using under solvent based finishes.

How many peices is that body? Try to take off less per pass with the router to prevent that tear out
