I would say "don't give up your dye job", but if you mishear, you might be offended.
The dye effects are exactly what I wanted...a very rare occurrence. Had a bad volume pot in the harness I made for it so don’t know how it sounds yet. Pickups are all Rio Grande. Super Classic Tallboy neck. Dirty Harry Jr. middle. Muy Grande bridge. Standard Tele harness with a push pull to activate middle. I’m not a fan of mint guards but it really works hear with the green yellow wood undertones.
That looks lovely !! Did you use aniline dyes ?
Great job. Love it !!
One thing I started doing on dyes (like I do them all the time--not. Done four) is to apply black or dark brown dye first. Then sand it all off. Except you don't sand it all off: it stays in the grain pattern. Makes the pattern pop a bit more when you then apply base color.
I love dye when it turns out well. I loathe it when it doesn't.
Yes it can be the best or really really the worst.
I was convinced to dye my last build and I'm glad because the Korina just looks right to my eyes. I would love to see others in different woods and colors. Here's mine
Looks quite nice. Dye looks great on many woods not normally considered for this type of finish.
