so im going to make a birds eye maple top guitar but was wondering how do you get those fancy looking coloured tops that look really cool

like what is the process
and all thanks

note: this is only my second time building a guitar my first was painted so i dont know much about wood
#2
buy some nitrocellulose laquer, it will make the maple tinted with the colour of your choice

hold on, i saw a really good video about it, let me find it. To google!

update:

I couldn't find the video, it was a really good one. it was a guy building a mandolin going through how he stained the flamed maple into a green burst. it was a good one. but I did find a helpful link to a thread here on UG that should give you some direction. https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-1011535.html
