I'm about to start building a custom guitar and I wonder if anyone could answer; what kind of paint/stain would be used to have see-through white finish on Quilted Maple? Thank you (:

Do you have any examples of this actually being done? Because in my mind, staining wood white wood just brighten it up and highlight the grain? Maybe i'm wrong, but I can't picture it.

I'll try to find a picture of the concept. It isn't the style posted by "lil PopTart kid", but thank you for insight.

Yes it exists...




Dont know how you do it though, dont really care either, its very ugly IMO.

Thanks Absent Mind, that's the basic concept. Any idea's anyone? I imagine some sort of stain.

It looks like the maple has been stained black, sanded back somewhat and then just stained white.

That one's not dyed. That one was painted with a thin enough layer of white paint that the figure shows through, barely. Awful thing to do to a nice piece of quilty maple. I've never heard of actual white stain, but good luck.

I find it to be complete sexiness.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
