I am refinishing my bass, and now have it stripped down. My first inclination was to use Minwax gel stain. Now I'm concerned about seeing a large difference in the resulting color of the spruce top vs. the maple sides and back. Surely the spruce will take up much more pigment than the maple.

How do you get a color match between those two types of wood?

If a stain is used, rather than a varnish, would Minwax's Wipeable Poly make an acceptable top coat?
