Mando Project Progress

I'm almost finished removing the old finish from the top and I removed the old white binding and left the checkered purfling. Koa binding will replace the removed binding later. In one of the the pics below you can see some dark sweat stains that made it through the finish on the top at some point in this little ladie's 60+ years. I'll gently bleach those stains with some oxalic acid. I also dyed the rosewood bridge with some leather dye. It'll look like ebony but still sound like rosewood. I'll be dying the fingerboard black too before the fret job.
