    The body arrived today! Unfortunately it's gonna take a bit of work to screw the neck in.

    But there's few pics on one of my threads.

    Mine's mahogany so the grain's sort of more obvious anyway. So I guess I'll go for a stain then tung oil.

    Haha! Oiling it is Easy! Just wipe on, let dry, and repeat a million times!
    The trick on basswood is to get that grain to pop out- I lightly scorched mine with fire, but you can put a darker dye diluted with water on and then sand it back- this deepens the grain appearance.

    That's it man! That, but with a red dye/stain.

    What was your process for applying tung oil?

    Thinking you are shooting for something like this?
    I've done some others like this too.
