All natural, no stain at all on any of the wood. White Oak with Cherry half moons.
The Cherry will darken to a rich red, in a few months.
Half natural, and one half moon stained with Cherry wipe on stain, then coated with poly.
Both stained with the wipe on stain, then coated with poly.
They are the same color, the light just struck them different when flash went off.
So, what do you think?
The grain on the cherry is much different on the stained one, than on the unstained.
I told the boss we had to get some birdseye maple to make some half moons with, soon.
Another few coats and a few more sandings, and they will be ready to put on the guitar, and strings go on.
Then we'll se how it sounds.
