toddler68 Posted April 20, 2004 Report Share Posted April 20, 2004 I read Scott Rosenberger's very thorough description of how to apply a flame top to a body. I am wondering if I can do this with veneer across 2 dimensions (compound curve). I have this old Mockingbird I thought I'd sacrafice as my first mod and I tried to approximate the general curve of my Ibanez S. After getting the general topography of the body, the wood (laminated basswood or alder) didn't seem very appealing grain wise. So, I thought it might be cool to throw a nice flame veneer on top. I have seen production S models with a cool transparent blue finish (only on a 7-string version) over flame maple. I read that the top is only about 1/16th inch veneer and wondered how the factory does it. Any clue? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
