    My Warwick SS2 is quite banged up. Started thinking I might sand it down and refinish it. Does anyone have recommendations on what to use?

    I had bought a pretty beat up Warwick Corvette STD I forget the year, it was made in Germany though. It had black finish. I sanded the finish off and did a antique kind of look. I used the same kind of method you would use to finish flamed maple.
    I used ebony stain I got from Lowes and Tung Oil also from Lowes.

    There is a thread on a guy that refinished a corvette somewhere on here. He did an amazing job

    I like the look of that, Oddfeen1. I may have to try that on one of mine.

    No. But I want sooooo badly to do this to my fortress. I think it's going to happen this summer.
