Larry is interested in wild colors for his guitar.  We ordered concentrated stains from Stewart MacDonald including Bright Green.  With a Maple back and sides and neck, he’s thinking a green mix with mahogany red or tobacco brown may give him the tint he’s looking for.  We’ll do some mixing and staining on maple scraps to test our thoughts.  He also located a wild green abalone pickguard on eBay which we can match up against the test stains.
