got a couple of suggestions for this for what they're worth

first one would be regarding the contours on the body. use as rough a tool as possible to get the wood to shape (such as a file/grinder to do the "grunt" work) and then sand it. would save you effort in the long run

my next suggestion is the same as littlephil's . . stain it black instead of painting it black. you could get the same effect while both showing off wood grain as well as decreasing the amount of work
