ibanez rg 470 idea.


Recommended Posts

Hello, my buddy in california just sent me the body and the neck of his baritone Ibanez rg 470 guitar to use as a refinishing project.

He already has a john petrucci (sp?) model with the face images on it. My idea is to put a figured veneer on the top and make the same face design with dyes in the wood. Also I have some flat silver ribbon I would like to inlay as a small border between the different colors. I don't quite know whether I should inlay the silver first? Is there a type of glue that would be less likely to seal the maple so it will take a dye? Any advice would be helpfull

Thanks. :D
