I'm always in for deep cherry or burgandy or mahogany red and translucent finishes.
When you said "seven piece top", my first thought was "gotta go solid". But that's some nice looking wood. I'd stain it all, then go back with a brush after the initial coat dries and carefully darken the light pieces to match the darker.
Yeah ... not that great indeed. At least you tried. Clear cherry LPs are rare.
Here's my Trad IV in my 59's case, same areaYes. I think so. Certainly the poly was deeper in these areas. In my refin I tried to accentuate the curves a little by (after this photo) sanding around that and the side perimeters.
Today I scraped the binding and applied the first 4 clear coats. I'll upload some pics tomorrow, but really happy with the outcome.
