Hey guys. I acquired a 1950 gibson southern jumbo acoustic that has had the top sanded. I'd love to refinish it to the original style burst but am looking for advice. Ive sprayed plenty of solid electric guitars, but never an acoustic and any hints/ suggestions would be appreciated. I'm looking to do the black/ tobacco burst like it originally had and was wondering if anyone had suggestions for the aresol cans to use. I'm good at spraying so I'm sure I can work with the cans. Does it look like the top is only a golden hue and then a black?? Not much of a transition. Anyway, Glad to be here and again, any pointers would be great. The back and sides are original and will be left alone. Attached is a pic of a 1950 original finish that Im trying to duplicate. Thanks!!
