This past week I went and visited Brian at Flamingo. It turns out that he is 10 mins from the house. Very helpful and full of information. One of the things that we talked about was the same subject you are raising.

From what I remember, you can not flatten veneer by itself. It has to glued to something, in your case a guitar body. You might want to check my experiments in veneering at www.stormriders.com/guitar/telecaster then click on Veneer.

Also, you can drop Brian an email or call him. He can also point you to some good books that might help you.

Have fun,

Guitar Ed
