    That kit looks like it holds a lot of potential.

    Checking for glue on the maple veneer, it looks like there's a spot near the neck PU

    some goof-off and a brass wire brush look to be in my future

    Well, I thought I'd got all the glue off before I started dyeing.

    The plan is to highlight the grain with black dye, then sand that back before colouring.

    I'll tape off the neck and cavities etc and let the black sit for a day or so.

    I'll spend some more time with the goof-off and wire brush and dye to try and minimize the glue spots

    I think I'm happy with the black highlighting now. time to sand it all back (carefully)

    half done

    all done lightly

    finished and ready for the colour
