schitzo1978 Posted March 7, 2005 Report Share Posted March 7, 2005 Here is the original question, having some difficulty with the site not responding. E. Hello All, this is my absolute first post here. I stumbled on this site and think it is incredible, the tutorials alone rock!! I just purchased a Jackson body which I have sanded down. It was in rough shape, i did all necessary wood filling wth plastic wood and and going to have to build up the sections between the pickups and bridge as it was not even. (I hope I can glue ontop of this stuff without it puffiing up?) My intention is to apply a nice veneer to the top of the guitar as seen in the veneering tutorial on this site. Here is my question: where can i get a nice bookmatched (is that the word?) thin veneer top? I went through the list of suppliers on the sire but to be quite honest it is VERY intimidating for a newbie who has never done this and doesn't have a good grasp of all this terminology. Essentially I am looking for a 2 piece veneer of flammed maple (like on the tutorial) and a piece for the headstock. Thickness between 1/20th-1/40th of an inche. Oh also, I am in montreal Canada but have not problems buying from a US based supplier. The guy who sold me the Jackson is also selling some Curly maple veneer (1/40th") which he is going to make me a deal on , 10USD for the 2 pieces for the body and a pice for the headstock. Problem is that I will more than likely mess this up so I want to buy quite a few sets. I have no problems buying 10 sets, especially since I will store the ones I dont use for friends who are starting projects. So all this being said, can any one you provide me with some companies that have what I am looking for.... (esentially the same wood that was used in the tutorial ! or very close to that). I am opened to other types of wood if they have the same visual effect. Thanks Eric Attard a.k.a.
