I recently accepted a damaged D15 in partial payment for work done on a 40's LG2...it is very well damaged....
I noticed that where the PO had done some sanding that the finish is what appears to be 2-stage
The base looks to be yellow-brown followed with a darker brown-mix.
Does anyone have any idea what the basecoat color is for the Martin Mahagany it is what gives the golden accent to the mahogany finish.
Just to clarify....I don't KNOW that what seems to be a basecoat is in fact a basecoat or that it gives that golden hue to the finish...just my initial thought when I was examining it.
Possibly..... I have some mahogany I can try it on...I do think it is being used as a primer also. So maybe tinted schellac or another tinted primer..
Do you know this site?
While trying to replicate what Martin does...they are most likely going to do something that is very time conserving. But I am considering the shellac if I can't find any info.
Thanks.....I appreciate it.
