You're buying an expensive flamed maple guitar body and you have to ask us how to finish it?
#3
What kinda sound are you going for anyway? That should affect your choice.

As for finish. I'd do pure white with gold or black hardware.

OR something like this:

(Or if you're scared of the pink then purple.)

A tranparent red finish would be fine IMO.

Love your thinking guys, and no I am not 100% sure what colour to finish it but I will definitely dye it, too show the flamed maple! Probably a blue or red dye! maybe blue coz my darkfire is kind of a red dye!

Anyway have any of you guys checked out the site? Really looking forward to hearing your opinion on it!

Flamed maple top and blue dye, and you think solid white's a good choice?

Also I'm guessing the sound he's going for is metal... typically that's what you do with EMG pickups and an FR bridge... granted I've been wrong before.
Epiphone Dot
DIY Esquire w/Neovin Power Rock pickup
Vox AC30VR 212
Arion MTE-1 (LED clipping diodes added)
Vox Tonelab LE
Roland SDE1000 delay

By high-gain I don't mean stupid stuff. I just mean styles like Motley Crue or Iron Maiden

1 - If you don't know exactly what you want then don't buy it.

2 - Don't advertise your site around here, if I see you do it again I'll have to report you.
