I've been researching some colouring techniques on hard maple, and to be honest, it would be easiest to bring it back to something close to the original colour. So that is certainly an option, although I think I can bring the grain out stronger than what it is currently. What I really would like is another original knob. I wish the parts site was still up.

I could use a few original knobs ( or the remade ones from the parts site) so if anyone wants to donate! I know we all are missing a few , and the only way to get them is to buy a whole guitar - ugh

Some say that you can't dye hard maple and you would have to tint your clear coat and spray that to do the dye job. Others say you can just dye it. Some will dye it black and then sand the top off and leave the black in the grain. This makes the grain pop when it's done.

I need 2 switchmasters too!
