Painting headstock


Senior member
Question.  I've got a birdeye neck being finished in satin nitro by Warmoth.  My plan is to sand the face of the headstock down so I can match the color burst I plan to do on the body.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but the birdseye is probably not going to take a water base stain.  I'll have to use a transparent nitro stain spray right? 

I'm wanting to do an Amber stain with a Red mahogany transparent spray stain on the edges.  The body will be using water base stain for the amber, just not sure if the tranparent nitro spray will match.  Kinda like the new Fender wolfgang.
