A Purple Stratocaster
This maple capped Strat was finished by Don
D. using The ReRanch water based purple dye. Here is Don's description
of the finish work;
"I just thought I'd send a couple
of pics of the guitar I just finished building. I ordered the purple dye from you,
after asking for the brightest purple you had. I wanted it to turn out
very vibrant, and I couldn't be happier with the results.
Great job, Don, and thanks for the pics.
I just wiped on the dye (several coats), and
clear coated. I used no sealer, so several coats with wet sanding between
them were necessary. I let each of the coats dry overnight. The neck was
also clear-coated. After letting it all cure for about a month, I began
wet sanding and final polish using MacGuiar's #2 Fine Cut Cleaner, and
then MacGuiar's #9 Swirl Remover. Both were applied with a DA sander and
So far, the guitar has been the life of the
party. People can't believe that it's possible to do a project like this
in the garage!"
