guitarmonky55 Posted January 22, 2005 Report Share Posted January 22, 2005 Ok so i just got my 23x10 flamed maple veneer from the wood well(awesome site, great price for big veneers for flying v or similar big guitars) Now im preparing to apply the veneer and have a few q's: 1)the body for my guitar is completely unfinished at the moment. I was planning on applying the veneer and then lacquering the back and sides(which will be a thin opaque blue), then staining my design on the top(american flag ) and then clearcoating the entire thing. does this sound good or would anyone here change the order? 2)im planning on staining the veneer black and sanding back a bit to bring the grain out, should i do this before or after lacquering the back? i was thinking before, as it will simply allow more time for the wood to dry completely before it gets finished. plus less risk of sanding up the sides and making a mess accidentally. man this wood grain is killer looking, and i only paid 12 bucks for it . i cant wait to get thsi guitar together!
