Maple top stained blue


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I am having a maple veneer top put on an Ibanez RG body I have (customised by Brian from floyd to hardtail-you may have seen the tutorial)

Paul from www.arrowheadguitars.com is going to do it for me but I am trying to come up with ideas for the particular shade of blue stain to have.

The hardtail hardware is black

The pickups will be black or blue.

The neck is flame maple with a blue vine inlay

So a request:

If you have seen any pics of shades of blue stained veneer could you post them here pics or urls because I need some ideas of which shade of blue :D

I may also go for a bit of a black sunburst too

Thanks very much in advance

Hi Simon,

There is an old saying: Ask and ye shall receive.

I built a Tele with a maple top and stained it blue. You can see it HERE. Scroll down a bit and click on Blue Guitar for pix with and without nitro. Includes tips on finishing. :DB):D !!!!!!! or :D

Foe dye sources, LMII, STEWMAC, or RERANCH. And don't forget good old Home Deport, Lowes, or your favorite hardware store for certain colors.

And remember to use that camera!!!!
