I'm sure you've been sitting on the edge of your seats since yesterday's post to see how this Junia turned out. Well, dear readers, I am here to put your mind at ease. Come and revel in the awesome. As I mentioned yesterday, I decided to make this kind of a Beauty and the Beast theme. The ash was dyed brown to start:

backdye

The maple top went through several instances of dyeing. First I added a layer of brown:

Then I added a layer of amber:

Then some red to the edges:

Then finally another coat of amber to bring it all together into what I call Autumn Sunset:

The control cover and the headstock went through the same dyeing process as the top:

Once she was all oiled and joined up, it was time to start adding the bling:

And now, to take her out into the sunlight and show her off in all her glory:
