Innovative guitar designs

Recommended Posts

May be a somewhat acquired  taste but I rather like this. I wonder how the finish was achieved? It’s apparently by ‘Gate Guitars’. Feel free to post up more cool designs.

Could be all sorts of ways.

Apply the blue-green paint and use paint stripper/sandpaper to distress the finish. Squirt a couple of shots of orange spray paint at strategic locations. Bury under clear.

The top may have already had that effect on it. Maybe it was reclaimed from an old warehouse? Protect it while you're building the guitar. Bury under clear

The pattern may be a print of some sort, perhaps a vinyl wrap. Bury under clear.

The 'framing' that goes around the perimeter of the body is the more interesting bit to my eye. Very neat alternate take on traditional binding.
