Root Beer

Anyone ever done a DIY Root Beer stain on Jem or other guitar? I was curious as to what color stain one would buy to achieve that color...


(Mods feel free to move this to another topic if mis-posted)

Re: Root Beer

i haven't, but i decided the other day that if i were ever to strip the finish of my rg, i'd get a RB finish.

i'd be interested to know how too.

Re: Root Beer

I have. Check it here, although I must move all pics to photobucket.... I burned the body in places and then put some clear wood varnish that changed the color very slightly. Finally I applied some automotive clear.

I'll try to edit posts and include pics were links are broken...
