hihoslva Posted April 3, 2008 Report Share Posted April 3, 2008 Hello all - new member here. Love the forum so far, and learning all the time! On my next project guitar, I'm looking to get a textured black finish like what is found on some speaker cabinets (and I have seen it on a few guitars, too). Flat black, but with the grain pattern visible. The best representation I could find online would be this pic: So I'm thinking a Swamp Ash body would really have some stand-out grain. Would it just be so simple as painting the thing flat black and then maybe some matte or satin clear? If so - then giddyup, I'm on it! Additionally - I may want a more "graphite" look. Maybe some of you have seen this color on some guitars - I think I've seen an Ibanez or two like it. Almost black color, almost metallic, but not quite. A tinge of gray. And the finish is flat, flat, flat. Any idea where to get a paint like that? Again - love the forum, and look forward to hanging out here more! ~I (oh, and here's a pic & info on the Warmoth build I just completed: http://projectguitar.ibforums.com/index.php?showtopic=35269 ) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
