Stain for Ovangkol & Wenge ?
I just got two custom J-necks ; one is Ovangkol with an ebony unlined fretless board, the other is Ovangkol with a fretted Wenge board.
Both ovangkol necks are prety light in color...varrying shades of dirty tan. Not too attractive.
The Wenge is very light chocolate...like cocoa powder, but pretty dry looking.
I'd like to oil them (or stain them) to attain a much darker color. I will not be applying any finish, of course, although when it's all done, I'll probably apply Warwick wax to the necks.
Any knowledgeable suggestions on what brand or composition of stain to use for the ovangkol?
And for the wenge board?
Any tips on technique are appreciated; I expect it's straightforward, wiping them on, but you may know some things to avoid.
