Do some research. I'm pretty sure you'll find that the actual designs are done on fabric/paper layered over the guitar then laquered.

Eh, almost everyone uses material to do floral and the like but there are guys out there with the talent to do it by hand. You just have to know who they are.

Thats why jemsite is dieing. Rude people like your self who ruin it for others if your only going to be a sour dick and not contribute to the forum DONT post. I honestly believe you owe someone an apology.

Re: how to do a floral paint job?

It is a unique question. Painting a FP guitar to look like a fabric top would be a challenge. I would send it to Legacy One guitars. Don't worry about the search engine just go for it.

??? I doubt Legacy One could paint a floral finish. The guy makes bodies and necks.

If you would like to look into getting a floral finish painted on, drop me a PM and I'll send you link to the site of a guy who can definitely do it. I won't post the link because he's not a site sponsor.
