I have two questions. 1. I plan on building a guitar this summer (yes i know this is talkBASS, but ive made 2 basses already though and its time for a change.) My intial thoughts are to have a Spanish Cedar body, bookmatched flamed maple top a quartersawn mahogany neck and a pau ferro fretboard. I want to give the flamed maple a deep amber almost red tone yet still see the grain clearly. What kind of finish should I use to attain this tone and how do I keep it from getting to the spanish cedar (would it be as simple as tape)? 2. If you were to finish this project what kind of finish would you use and how would you do it?
