A Good Or A Bad Idea ?

Recommended Posts

I plan to do in a near future something like this and i was thinking in printing this pattern in paper with a ink-jet plotter with UV ink, then the next step is to glue that to the guitar body and so on ... is this a good or bad idea ? Is there a more effective method ?



Bad idea

Get some white decal transfer paper. You can find it at hobby shops and ebay.

Well, first i must find a foto with that pattern , after that it´s really easy ! My wife works with several companies that can make that , i can ask her to make a "prototype" with that pattern, for her, 1 sample it´s for free ...  :D

Good luck with the project then man and be sure to post pictures!!

This place sells snakeskin tolex. If you went this route, it'd probably look more real than fabric with clear coat, but your probably shouldn't put much of a finish over it. Hey, if it's durable enough for an amp, it's durable enough for a guitar.
