Ebony / black / dark walnut "wiping stain" mixed with a spray type lacquer and applied with a touch up gun or an air brush. Lacquer dries in seconds and the dark stain will hide "most" if not all of the grain.

As far as the finish level goes, the lacquer will dry shiny, but a rub with some 0000 steel wool will wipe away the gloss and leave an absolutely level "satin" or slightly less than satin finish.
