gtrplyr Posted February 9, 2009 Report Share Posted February 9, 2009 ok first off, im new here and i dont even know if im going to make a guitar or not. i really want to but im 15 and know only basic things about woodworking. my dad is the one that would show me how to do this kind of stuff and even he doesnt think he would be able to make a guitar. do u think i should go for it or should i take another shop class next year before i start this? if i were to make one, my body is going to have a flame maple top with this finish. i dont know how to make it look just like that, if you have seen it in person (its a schecter c-1 plus that i took into photoshop and made it grey) youll know it has a thick layer of gloss (is that what its called?). youll also notice it has that black outline around it that fades into the flame maple top. does anyone know how i can get it to look just like this? or do you think i should go a different route and get a different finish or paintjob. i want something unique, even tho the flame maple top isnt all that unique i really like it. also, is there a site anywhere that has inlay previews? ive been looking for a simple inlay that i like and the only one i like is the simple/boring dot inlays. maybe ill just go with that. or make my own if i figure out how to do that. thanks for the help Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
