Comments: This was my second build, the Elvish "Rosie."
Using Keda Dyes, started with a black wash sanded back, then applied the color. Sealed and finished with nitro rattle cans. I should have grain filled because it took more coats than anticipated for a smooth finish.
Upgrades include: knobs, pots, cap, wires, jack, bridge and pickups (along with black covers).
Overall, I am very pleased with the result!
