Curious if anyone has a swamp ash AAT with Black Stain??
I m thinking about getting this on an Aries and possibly going to ask for a thin KRG burst around the top wood (but wondering if it wpuld.be too much) then black trans on the bevel.
Anyways. Really curious to see if anyone has the black stain on ash. Any pics would be awesome!!!
Also thoughts on Gloss vs Satin??
I love all the options but definitely overwhelming sometimes.
Added a couple screen shots from the build app

If you really want a color over AAT to make it black over black, you would want a custom trans gray rather than black, if you want more contrast between the lighter color and the grain. Or you go with a raw tone finish where by not having a perfectly smooth surface, the light makes the grain pop more. Same concept of how you can see the grain really well on a jet black raw tone, even though it's all solid satin black.
Also, don't forget about blacked out ash is an option too.
For reference, look at how the raspberry jam stain looks over swamp ash, there's no AAT here. Because of how the stain is absorbed you do get light and dark.

Other than the obvious sheen satin will ding easily than gloss. All my electrics are gloss (I’m a clumsy) and my acoustic electrics are satin.
