So I see all kinds of guitars these days with dyed Maple tops and natural bevels and the like, and I can't figure out how to make that work. Even on a bound guitar, it seems like it would be difficult to mask off the binding just right so that when you dye the top, it perfectly matches the contour of the binding (or the bevel). So how is it done? Do you sand or scrape the dye off the clean parts? Do you just be super careful with your masking? Do you use tinted lacquer instead of dye? If you DO mask it, what do you use that will actually hold back a water based dye to a crisp line on bare wood? If anyone has a tutorial on this sort of thing I'd be really appreciative.
