Builder: Dave

Comments: I had some walnut burl left over from my bass build so decided to do a similar LP build to match it.

    Looks great! I got a spalted LP kit for Christmas that I’m looking forward to working on soon. How did do the back? With the same walnut burl finish? That’s really nice looking!

    The back is the natural rosewood of the body with a little brown TransTint dye to darken it a bit. Then a slight sunburst around the edges with more brown dye. You can feather it out with a damp cloth after you apply to even up the color and fade it in.

    This looks amazing! Where did you find black backplates that fit? I’m having a hard time finding ones that have the right dimensions.
