I'm working on staining my acoustic guitar, and I wanna add some details. Do you guys have any good designs/emblems/cool cutouts that I could trace on my guitar and fill in?

Post them!

(please) Razz

Leaves make great stencils, especially if you layer it in a pattern. You can get a lot of interesting angular designs.

I'm also quite a fan of biohazards, or Imperial or Rebel symbols, if you want a Star Wars guitar. Skulls are always fun too.

Just 2-3 diagonal stripes add +10 compositional design.

I think you should come up with your own design instead of just putting on something like skulls or biohazard symbols. No offense, GIR.

You could get pretty creative with it, and having your own design would make it much more unique and special.

For inspiration, I'd look at Porl Thompson's (of The Cure) guitar, because it has some really awesome graphics on it.

Totally agree with you Daniel, Iceman try to make your own art for the guitar. It is more original than tracing someone else's work. Having three bass guitars I have actually taken apart on og the cheap ones that I think was a Rouge that I have been messing with to make it look like a rifle. Just think of something that you think would look cool and go for it.

And that is why the Cure wins. Cool

Thanks guys! I ended up doing three crowns, for the Swedish Tri Kronar. I have to run out to the guitar store today to pick up some new bridge pins and strings, but hopefully I'll have some pictures up by tonight! Smile I'd never done anything like this before, so granted it's a tad "amateur, but I think it turned out pretty well for staining an acoustic guitar.

Thanks again!'

And there's a total of 4 diagonal stripes Paddy! And 3 different colors of stain. Smile

I think, you should put a chipmunk on it.
Why? Well do you know anyone else who has a chipmonk picture on their guitar?
or maybe a peanut.

I wonder why I don't know anyone with that. Wink




Finished!
total rehaul of the wood pretty much, none of the origional color is left.
Enjoy!

Also, should I engrave the black part?
