SwedishLuthier, the reason I cannot buy the veneer is my personal problem. I know that it is available but I have been having some cedit card problems. I am looking for other cool designs to just paint on there if you have any ideas.
Thank you so much. At least I know what it is know. Unfortunatly I can't buy the veneer, but I was wondering if there was any way I could paint the guitar one color, mask some of the guitar with electrical tape cut into patterns like the flame maple, then paint the guitar 1 shade darker of the same color. I dont know if it would work but I feel like it could look cool even if it doesnt look like the flame.
I am rebuilding and repainting a Johnson Strat that I have had since is was 7 (know 19). I am going to repaint it but I need some help figuring out what a ertain design is called or how to do it. The design I am looking for almost looks like really little tiger stripes but faded, no solid. I mostly see it on les paul models, or guitars that dont have a scratch guard that covers most of the body. At Guitar Center's website, their les paul page has a picture of a guitar with this print, but I can not find what the print is called. Here is a link to the Website: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Gibson-Les-Paul-g26549t0.gc?esid=Les%20Paul I have had this guitar for a very long time, but I did not treat it right at the beginning of it's life with me. It has a lot of scratches and dents in it that I will fill, but i was wondering if I would be able to see the filler through transparent paint. As far as I know, the design I want to put on my guitar should be with transparent paint that One wpuld be able to see the wood grain through. Please Help ! Thankyou
