Finish/refinish wood question

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by tdelamont, Aug 20, 2012.

  1. I would like to "age" (darken) the pale maple of my P's headstock (it's a long story). Do any of you TBers out there experienced in refinishing have any tips? I only need to darken the face of it, the back of the headstock and the neck can stay as is. Thanks!

    There's more than one way to skin a cat:

    What kinds of finishing experience do you have?
    What kinds of finishing equipment do you have?
  3. Zero and zero. That's why I was asking! HELP!
  4. Most refinishers use a tinted clear lacquer, available in spray cans, thru specialty suppliers like reranch.com The number of coats applied will give darker and darker results. We call it "Vintage tinting"
