Step by Step Guitar Build 8 – staining

I’m not sure how many coats I put overall, I stopped documenting it unfortunately, possibly because this was the most frustrating part of the build. It’s so awesome to see the guitar come to life with colour, but the staining process (including sanding previous coat down) is really quick, and then you’ve got to wait. In my case it meant wait until the next evening after work. It was really testing my patience!

Here’s a gradient of the first few coats. It was my first attempt with it so it was quite blotchy.
