I've got a 15 year old Seagull S6 that I will never part with. It's cedar-topped and as it's aged, the top has darkened. Because the back and sides are wild cherry, the top is actually quite a bit darker than the back and sides, and it bugs me. I must have very conservative ideas about how guitars should look, but anyway. I've been thinking for some time now about very lightly hand sanding the back and sides and applying a darker stain. The back and sides are laminate so it shouldn't be a problem...... should it? Am I nuts? Should I just get over it and leave it alone?
