    Default Striped with stain

    Has anyone here ever striped a guitar with stain rather than paint? I'm thinking about doing it to a kit guitar and I can't remember if anyone here has ever done that.

    There's a thin line between genius and insanity. I like to dance on it.

    Oh, duh, my brain is running on four hours of sleep. Sorry bout that. If you stripe enough coats of your base colour it should be alright, though to be safe you could use the process detailed in the Home Depot page to prep the wood. Make sure all finishes are gone, though.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. Are the stripes a lighter stain or just more of the same for the darker areas?
