I've just got all the original paint off it now n just gonna sand it all smooth but i've been stuck on what to do for the finish. Any ideas?

This was my original idea, wood on front n back with black sides
N this is how it is now just all down to wood

black stain couple layers, then cherry stain until you get the right shade, then you clear coat it

tried a paint stripper and thinners but they just made it shiny haha so i broke out the sand paper just smoothing it all down now, it had a good few dents and chips so having to try smooth/round some of them off as best i can, happy with how its turning out so far. but dissapointed that it needs a 22 fret neck rather than 24 lol
