    I would say "don't give up your dye job", but if you mishear, you might be offended. :D

    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.

    ok
    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 IMG_1926.JPG

    Looks quite nice. Dye looks great on many woods not normally considered for this type of finish.
