Re: Need help with JPM project
Thanks for the info! Much appreciated.
My plan is to use sand and sealer and then use an alcohol based dye. I would like the color to be light blue, so that the dye particles collect in the carvings that make up the design, which will hopefully result in a darker blue outline. Then I will shoot a clear coat and hopefully have a beautiful guitar, but I guess it depends on how the basswood reacts to the dye.
As far as the rest of the guitar, I already have an MIJ RG570 neck to go with the body. Also not sure of the color scheme for the hardware. I'm thinking black, but maybe gold would look nice with the blue. I have a 7 string Ibanez, but I'm hoping this will be my main 6 string. I'll slap some Crunchlab/Liquifires in there and this thing will be a beauty. I hope. In any case, this is a fun project and definitely a learning experience.
