Yet Another Veneer Question

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

So I have an ibanez s540 that I refinished long ago. I'm thinking of changing the look yet again, and would like to veneer the front of it, but am curious how to get the flattened veneer to "wrap" around the compound curves of the top. If it were just a radiused top like Brian Moore uses, it would just bend right around, but I'm worried that since it's a domed top, the veneer will fold or overlap on the lower bout. Will the veneer stretch a bit to conform (maple burl, probably), or are there any tips to getting it on tight and clean? Thanks for the help.
