Yeah got a littlte sick of the natural walnut look. I have 2 of them so having both the same was a bit much. Thinking of staining the other black.

Gave the body a very light sand just to get rid of the oil finish. Then applied the stain with a rag. It took a few coates but can vary depending on how much coverage you are after. I then sprayed a few very light coates of flat varnish to protect the stain. It hasn't effected the sound at all.
