Would it look any good? I know that walnut is a darker colored wood, so that's my main concern. I'm building a walnut/maple/walnut guitar and I want a trans black finish over just about anything, but i'm not sure how it'd look.

any suggestions?
As far as i know, walnut is pretty dark as it is. You could go darker but im not sure if the figure would stand out as well with a trans black stain.

If you already have the walnut, take a scrap peice and experiment, see what looks good for you.
First page of an image search on google for black walnut guitar has a picture.
