I am building a PRS copy. It's made of flamed maple but I don't like the colour of it and I really want some kind of design on it too, what would the best materials to do this with?
Thanks in advance \m/
If it were me, I'd stain it, with 2 different colours to bring out the flame in the maple. (stain, sand back, stain with second colour). maybe a bit of a sunburst too...
Then I'd finish it with linseed oil.

That's the kind of design I'm into.
