Guys,

Ill upload a photo tomorrow....

But I have a maple neck with rosewood fretboard... 6 string big thick box but no real nice cigar box detail.

I am thinking about keeping the bottom half of the box 100% normal. But removing the top lid and spraying to a higfh gloss Pelham Blue....

This is a resonator guitar and a special box but just not the finest of grains...

or

A black and blue burst?!

Opinions please!!!!

I vote for the Pelham Blue.

Go for it.

I have a Cedar Box guitar that's stained Ebony with Tru-Oil finish and a CBG painted with Lime Green Glitterblast.

Having just looked at what a Pelhan Blue guitar looks like I would go for that.

Im going to do it.... awesome!

Guys,

I was thinking of using this method to finish a CG build in progress...

Has anyone tried this? I assume I can nitro finish it? 

I am going to try and black and blue burst it instead... figured the grain was pretty nice and wanted to hold some character.

Looking good Rob.

Stewmac.com has Tinted Colors or Nitro in rattle cans if you want to go that route.

I basically would like to create a black and blue burst like this

So figured that hand staining with a nitro spray gloss finish could work best... :)?

That’s cool I’m doing a rip & strip of a old blue solid body and this is what I’m going to do with it after the chopping is done . The Blue Burst looks great .
