Hi,

I'm starting a diy lap steel guitar project inspired in the Duesenberg Fairytale lap steel guitar design.

As a newcomer to the diy world i would like to get some advices regarding what colours should i use to achieve a gold burst effect on a 1 piece mahogany wood.

I'm thinking about going for a tru-oil finish after....

Thank you in advance for your replies

Gold burst??

You cannot make the mahogany any lighter than it is so you are locked in to a reddish brown background for a burst.
