New York Bob’s Old School Masterpiece

dsc02033-1

Here is Bob’s guitar. Man oh man, he did this beautifully.

I used RIT dye for all the staining then many coats of spray on nitrocellulose lacquer.

Back & neck scarlet/brown stain rag rubbed. Top mixed some brown, rag rubbed the top & sanded all off  (to highlight the deep maple grain).  Mixed yellow/ small amount orange then rag rubbed.  I used same red stain from the back to rag rubbed the burst, used more yellow/orange,  to mix down the red to have a faded burst.  Lacquer.

Headstock mother of pearl inlayed.
