I'll never be completely satisfied with my designs, but here's 5lbs 14ozs of Lollar P90, Dearmond Gold Foil TONE.

Ladyfinisher absolutely NAILED the finish on this!

That looks cool. Cool I really like the finish, and I bet that P-90 rocks.

I posted this on a couple Facebook groups. He isn't mentioning, but the body shape is getting rave reviews. It sure is one of my favorites.

rjhasley.....

That is kind of a hybrid experiment. It started with a water base white pickle stain. Then a very thin tinted semi-clear to even out the color and make sure it went to beige instead of green under the nitro.
