On the back of Mark's new finishing course, I decided to have a go at the burst style of finish on my latest creation.

So:-

PRS Style carved top electric guitar.

Flamed maple on mahogany back finished in Sienna burst.

Mahogany neck with ebony fretboard and headstock faceplate veneer, inlaid with mother of Pearl triskelion and Logo.

Irongear PAF rolling mill humbuckers fitted with, 3 way toggle switch, CTS volume and split coil tap on the CTS tone knob. Topped with PRS lampshade knobs.

Gotoh SG381 locking tuners in gold with amber buttons.

Gotoh VSVG Vintage Tremolo Bridge in Gold,

Straplock buttons in gold.

Hope you like it.

Next one has the maple neck and fretboard I've been talking about but that will have to wait a bit as there is decorating to be done (always keep the boss happy)

@mikeyrjiom Wow! 'Nice job' would be an understatement. 

What paints and lacquer did you use? 

I wanted to ask the same question 🙂

Thanks for all the comments guys it is really appreciated.

@boo  and @koendb  Most stuff came from Tonetech Manchester, just the tomato Red from R&F

Golden yellow water based stain to pull the flame out a bit. Then the sealer / grain filler, then amber tint nitro and finally a Rothko and Frost Tomato Red for the burst. Finished off with around 8 coats of tonetech clear lacquer.

Just to throw out a question:- My preference is not to properly grain fill the back, 3/4 coats on the front maybe only 1/2 on the back. I want to show the grain through the lacquer. anyone else ?
