I would try some contact cement, since it should be compatible with both materials. A little scuffing of the pickguard for good measure would be wise.

I second this motion.

I would definitely mask it. You might be fine without it but my experience with tortoise binding is that it doesn't need anything to make it look darker in any way.

Ok, so after scuffing, I should prime and then paint? I had heard from several people you can just paint on top of the scuffed up old paint???

No...you don't have to prime...and I likely wouldn't m ...

Yes...you can (and should) just scuff the finish and paint over it. For the body in question and the plan you have in mind there is no reason to even think about stripping it. As for adverse effects ...

Are you mixing or using spray cans? When you said dye, I assumed you were mixing. IMO, cherry red is what you'd want. You mix it in proportion with the brown to get the color.
There are dozens of ...

Cool article about the Taylor guitar. That oak neck is gorgeous. My original plan was to laminate 3 pieces of pine for the neck but I might take a look at the mystery wood runner pieces I have.

So what are your best guess for the two outer colors on the two Benedetto photos using above dyes?
I'm seeing Tobacco Brown and Red. Unless my screen is crazy, I don't see any black. Those two toge ...

It looks to me like you have two options...
(1) find paint products in Brazil and do the entire job there
(2) paint the color and clear it with automotive urethane here. It would be safe to put it ...
