Yes, tinting the clear finish is what I do as well as spraying the stain directly on the wood. With tint you get a very even finish - if the guy doing the spraying is good at it. The biggest drawback is that if you get a run or sag, the whole guitar is shot and you have to start over. If you get a sag in the clear, just buff it out.

I usually shoot a coat of stain on the body then a coat of tinted finish then go to clear to build it up. But there isnt a right or wrong... just how the finisher prefers to do the job.
