Veneer Top Question

Recommended Posts

I was reading over the page explaining the veneer top and I'm really intrested in doing this to a LP I have but I was wondering, once you have it glued to the body can you paint over it and it be a flame effect in whatever color you choose? And also can I do this to a Lp that isnt a flat top? :D

You can use paint, but it has to be transparent or candy color paint. A lot of the lower end guitars with transparent tops are painted and not dyed. Even some of the higher end stuff uses dye and paint. I haven't played much with the candy paints yet, but some guys say that using a transparent paint gives a better 3d effect to the grain than dying does.
