Cool or dude what are you thinking?

Ok,first let me say that i`m kind of a WWI buff mainly the planes and especially the Red Baron. I came up with this idea for my Carvin guitar since it`s Red.......



This is just a paper drawing i did and cut out and placed on the guitar to take a couple of pics. I wouldn`t want anything permanent maybe just a decal like the ones that go on automobile windows so i can take it off if i wanted. I kind of like it but maybe i`m just bored today *lol* What do you think?

I like it. In fact, I'd kinda like to see the cross a bit BIGGER.

Re: Cool or dude what are you thinking?

put me down for a "what were you thinking". It might be cool if there were more stickers on the gutiar, but I'm not a fan of just having the one.

Not feelin' it brotha, sorry. I'm not a fan of stickers/decals on guitars, to me it just makes 'em look cheap.

Re: Cool or dude what are you thinking?

I saw this on the JCF forums. There is a cool axe here someone just did with bomb inlays but I can't find it.

I think you would dig that since you're into planes.

Just thinking out loud, maybe a cool cartoon looking Red Baron or Snoopy or something?

Re: Cool or dude what are you thinking?

To give a different opinion... I think it looks fine, either bare or with the ONE sticker (never been a fan of random sticker plastered guitars). Behind the bridge is a very good place to put a symmetrical decal. It doesn't look sloppy, and you can remove it if you ever get tired of it.

Re: Cool or dude what are you thinking?

I agree. Too many stickers, to me, just looks a mess. I like what finstah mentioned. Bomb inlays, and a few other well-placed items might look cool. Don't know about the Snoopy-thing, though.
