daveq Posted December 13, 2005 Report Share Posted December 13, 2005 I'm having the worst time trying to decide on a color for my PRS'ish project. It has a nice quilt top and it's a nice bright/pale color (no need to bleach). Here's what the guitar is made of: 1.Quilt maple top 2.Alder body 3.Flame maple neck laminated with Wenge (7 piece) 4.Flame maple fretboard with wenge bird inlay at 12th fret 5.Wenge headstock with scarf joint It will have chrome hardware and black knobs. I was originally thinking that I'd do a cherry burst but I don't think I want to go that way now. Now, I'm considering these: A. Bright orange with a fade to darker orange/red at the edges B. Black burst (would need some tips on how to do this) C. Bright Yellow possibly with some fading effects D. The good 'ol Blue Burst E. Carri-burst I have no experience with doing a black burst. I also don't know if that would be a waste of a really nice bright colored top (which usually tends to go well with bright colors). I can't decide!!! HELP!!!!!!
