im +10000000000000 to the 1st coat of black stain...that will totally make your grain pop..do a light coat, dont give it too much time to set in, sand it back, go back again with your purple...should give a real nice 3d grain effect..
Ok I will look into getting some trans black.

I read about someone who does it with a flower sprayer (don't know how to call it in english) You can spray water on plants with it ;-)
He said this prevents too much water penetrating the wood. He also said some colours are know to bleed through. I suugest you try it first on a piece off scrapwood. Better save then sorry!
I found this here on sevenstring:
Bursting with a Different Color
I used water to mix the dye with. I will be extra careful when doing the edges. Also we picked up like a sprayer for the clear coat. Speaking of clear coat, what exactly is used to get that high gloss look? I though it was polyurethane or something
Also are you referring to the clear coat for the spraying thing or the burst
Thanks so much. I love your build so much.
