Iím building a replica of a 54 Telecaster. I have the body filled and sealed. Iím hung up on the color and how to mix it. I use a spray gun and compressor with Sherwin Williams lovoc lacquer. Iíve mixed colors before a sunburst and for necks.

Hereís the body now after grain fill, sealer, and one coat of clear to lock it in.


Hereís my objective and goal.

I used mohawk toner and blonde and got very close to that color.
