Hello all, I recently decided to refinish my entire Epiphone special, I'm trying to learn to build guitars, and figured I might as well learn something with the ones I have.

I know what color of stain I want, but, I'm a little unsure of what kind of stain, (eg. water based? other? ect.) what is the process you go through when refinishing a guitar?

Honestly if someone could outline where to start and what I need to do that'd be great, I don't need to be walked through it, but, an outline would help.
I can never think of a good sig.
Thanks so much man! I didn't even see a thread on this, I really appreciate it.
