So my Les Paul has had a few too many paint dings and scratches and it came with finish imperfections from the factory (Got it for reduced Price because of that) and I think it's time to refinish it. It has a flamed maple top and I had the idea, why not make it a pink burst with transparent pink as the main color and black around the edges? I tried to find pictures of what said guitar would look like but I can't find any. Can anyone link me to a picture of a similar looking guitar to this? Also, what specific color and style of paint would you recommend for the pink?

^thats a solid pink burst, though..

I dunno if you'd be able get a hold of pink dye that'd work properly.. or, I haven't seen any, anyway.

you might be able to get a pink-ish colour with super diluted red dyes, but it probably won't be what you're hoping for

Thats lovely =] I think your better out making the pink rather than getting one since it would be a bit of hard thing to do... But dangi love pink! So heck with it, do it as long as it ends pink.

i know i just thought it'd be a good starting point, and he can just add black to the edges like he said he wanted

It would look awesome if you could keep it transparent and allow the grain to show through, and possibly if you did a kind of pink-maroon-black burst.... that would be sick
