I like the tiger stripes...if you are asking what other colors I would recommend..or how it looks now....I would say it looks nice like it is...I would be tempted to Camo it out olive drab and the like...Jungle motiff....my twisted ideas...
Leave the stripes like they are...like "Jungle Camoflauge" G.I pants you get from an army surplus store...the fretboard...if nice colored Brazilian Rosewood would add to it's "organic" look....just an idea when I first saw it..
Thanks man. I have both a rosewood or a maple neck for this.
I can try both. but I think the rosewood would look better since you mentioned it. May have to dig some black hardware out for it to. Any idea how I can shade some grays into this?
Sorry man.I sounded like a smart ass the post above...i don't remember grey in the camo scheme..but it is possible I would guess to etch along the tiger stripes since you would probably block those parts off with tape for the cabo overspray...
You can use a mastik or white glue to block off areas you want to keep paint off of, then rub it off gently so it doesn't tear up the paint underneath. So you could use the glue over the existing stripes, then paint your camo shapes and remove the glue afterwards to look like the camo is underneath the stripes.
I'm always on the lookout for ways to paint a guitar. Was at the Air and Space museum in DC and saw this old plane hanging up there. The body of the plane was clear coated so you could see the wood grain. This struck me as a fantastic possibility for a guitar: allowing areas of wood to show through the paint job! Anyway, just some ideas along this subject line.
