    Right. After grain filling with white, light coat of lacquer to seal it in, then the black.

    Thanks!
    I ran across a photo of this Custom Shop SG Special in TV White pictured in the link below.

    https://solidguitar.fandom.com/wiki/SG_Special?file=Special_vos_tv_white.jpg

    Never seen that finish on an SG before, only on older LP Specials. The color looks similar to my refinished SG, only with more pronounced grain visible that I really like. Well, I guess I can officially call mine TV White now. Since I now have my Natural Korina SG Standard that has the Yellow color that I always wanted, and now this TV White refinish, the collection of different color SG is now complete.

    @PermissionToLand, you really did an excellent job on these SG Wiki pages! Thanks for all the time and effort you put into them.

    After you put a couple layers of pore filler on and level it, you shoot a couple thin coats of vinyl sealer. That helps the nitro [or in his case, urethane] stick better, and seals the pore filler.

    My bad. Got it backasswards. Dye black > very thin coat of sealer > grain fill with white (some use sheetrock mud) > lots of clear
