Hey everyone, its been a while since I've been on here. Anyways, for the past few weeks I've been taking a course in lutherie school working on building my first guitar. I've gotten pretty far with it and now I'm at the stage where I have to decide colors... So it's basically designed after a Yamaha SG, but with a rosewood fretboard, walnut body and veneered headstock, and mahogany neck. I did get gold hardware and black 3-ply pickguard material, pickup rings, and a black input jack cover. So on to the finishes... The teacher here has on hand deep amber, blue, and yellow wood due, but he was saying I should go natural with it. I put water on the body and it does look good natural. Natural guitars aren't really my thing but it would probably grow on me eventually. So my choices are natural or whatever color I can make with these dyes. I was thinking maybe a transluscent green or deep purple, but I don't know. I need help deciding, and maybe some material to go off of for color matching so posting some pics would be helpful. Oh yeh, I was supposed to be doing the dyeing tomorrow if that's what I decide to do so I can put a coat of finish on it and let it dry this weekend. Let me know what you think.
