I'd like some advice on staining my natural Rockbass Corvette into a black stain. I'd appreciate any advice re: sanding/cutting back the current 'finish' & staining/finish coating procedures. My 1st time to try but don't wanna pay a pro as the bass isn't that expensive. Thanks brethren

You probably should ask this in the 'Blueprinting and Bondo' forum.

a lot will depend on the woods your body is made from. any possibility of adding a few close-up images of the top, back, and sides?
