Best shellac for Black Walnut and WRC 

Getting closer on my latest guitar, black walnut B&S and WRC top and was wondering about which shellac I should use for each?

Guess I shuld do up some test pieces but not sure it really matters with the walnut?

Last photo is top with a wipe of some old blond I had left in the squeeze bottle.

I prefer my flamenco guitar spicy,
doesn't have to be fast,
should have some meat on the bones,
can be raw or well done,
as long as it doesn't sound like it's turning green on an elevator floor.

A Lemon shellac is used by the French makers to make their guitars look very rich and vibrant. Even on Brazllian rosewood! I think it would work excellently with Walnut
