Right. After grain filling with white, light coat of lacquer to seal it in, then the black.
It looks fricken GREAT!
+1 on that
I ran across a photo of this Custom Shop SG Special in TV White pictured in the link below.
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.
Yes, your's is TV White, and a rare bird now. Enjoy!
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
