We all know Leo was frugal especially in the early days.

Does anyone have techniques for getting that early blackguard look. I thought 1 or 2 sand n seal coats and maybe 3 lacquer coats for the neck? It appears that they didnít grain fill on the ash bodies and they didnít sand n seal the earliest ones and the paint flaked off. I havenít decided if I will try that as everything I skipped S&S on the paint wouldnít stick. I need a scrap piece of swamp ash to test on.

Were blackguard bodies clear coated?

Thanks!
