I'm in the process of building another new Highline guitar design. You can follow the progress on my tumbler blog. At any rate, I wanted to share a photo I just took of the body after applying a wash of oil based stain. What looked like plain white Maple really came to life. As I walk around the body, the flame Maple's figure shifts. It's an optical illusion called chatoyancy and it creates a 3D like surface. Very cool.
