Wow, I never saw this message ... sorry I did not respond. The finish was an accident. I went to strip it down and the polyurethane was a ***** to remove. THe body ended up scraped and scratched and gouged ... so, after the mutilation, I sanded it A LOT to smooth out the damage. Then I applied a dark stain from Wudtone (google them) and this is what I ended up with!
