Foto finish on an OLP

The Hurt

Recommended Posts

I ran a search before this post and could not find anything. I was looking at this guitar olp and was curious about the foto finish he has in parenthesis. OLP website had the same thing listed with a film finish which I did find in the search. If this is the same thing would somebody let me know. Also is this thing worth it?

I think the guy is mistaken If ya don't mind my saying so. It looks to me like a Maple Top on it but that's probably what the guy was told about the top.

edit:Yep, It's some kinda film of the maple, somehow fastened to the top of the thing.

Possibly Mylar with a maple like print on it.

OLP's are given fair reviews for their price. Film and photo are the same thing. Just different words that mean the same thing. Film (photo) finishes are used a lot on low end guitars and some of the later Fender's. It is very common, just harder to refinish.

New they go for around $225.00 US new. :D

A good place to look at the reviews is harmonycentral.com
