I donīt think is Good idea.

You can burn your self triying to put it out..and i think it will burn very fast and you can damage your body. ..

i use a heat gun in my Mod over here:

it burns very fast just by passing over a 2 cm !!!

but if you wanna try be my guest.

I've always wanted to actually barbeque a guitar body, so that you have cross pattern grill lines, and a faded burn in between. You know, really make it look like a pork chop or something. Then put a carmel colored stain/glaze over it, but leave the indentations from the grill in it so it looked like a pork chop with sear marks, rather than sand it smooth. Leave drips and runs in the gel stain too, so it looks like juices and drippings.

I've burnt about 4 or 5 guitar bodies, sanded them and then stained them and put a beewax finish on. The results have always been great. Looks, feels and sounds nice. Even you grandma will like them.

Heat gun is ok for kiddies, real troopers use a gas flame. Burn baby, burn!
