    Of the two - blue burl wood.... But agree that you can probably do better with a nice oil finish and/or different wrap all together.

    wood oil is really easy as pie.. you can't mess it up.. instead of with a brush, you put it on with a cloth and rub out.. get a very nice matte finish..
    one layer should be enough.. but with 2 layers you can get darker .. and there are about a dozen color grades from light to darker woods ..
    for ex : this is one layer of 'yard timber yellow' oil on birch.. & excuse for hijacking the thread.. if you don't like wood colors..

    I agree with Ericdrumz, a nice tung oil finish, maybe a matte black hardware, that would look nice!!!!

    Neither... the burl looks like cancer and the purple IMO, just so 60's.

    imo neither.. i'd strip the wrap.. sand the shells and put a layer of matte wood oil on them.. (light color)

    started a topic Which Wrap ?

    Which Wrap ?

    I am putting together an A2E kit using some orphan shells I have laying around but having a hard time deciding between these two wraps.
    What looks better - the purple satin flame or the Mapa Burl Blue Burst ?
