I'd like to get a new body (for my bass, that is ). I'm pretty sure I want alder and I'm on a budget. I don't have a room where I could use spray paint and don't want to do it outside. I read a little on reranch and other sites on the web, but I am confused. Will stain/dey deliver good results with alder? I read on several sites that alder is difficult to stain. So, what is the easiest and cheapest way to finish alder in a solid color? Time is not an issue, so twenty coats of tru-oil would be fine.
