Been reading a lot about grain filling mahogany. Question for the masses-Tint the grain filler, or leave it clear?

I'm doing my mahogany 1976 Gibson Explorer, and decided to go w/ Neck Amber as my "color". Thought a reddish/yellow tinted grain filler, followed by the Cato epoxy method, might be the ticket under the Amber. I want really intense grain to show thru. Thoughts?

Clear Epoxy - it will make a dramatic difference in a transparent finish. One word of advice, get a package of the latex doctors style gloves and only do a little bit at a time.
