I really want a gold top. Maybe I will cover this.
I'm not a spalted fan so I can support that decision!
Thats a nice looking spalted.
Two legs and a loin cloth.
You dont see that often.
do what you want you will be the one looking at it
That's a nice looking top. I'd put a transparent or translucent finish on that guitar body. Find an ugly guitar body and paint it gold.
To paraphrase, "there's a shortage of perfect spalts in this world, it would be a pity to damage yours"
I'm a big fan of natural finishes, i'd vote to let the grain shine through.
I like that top, too. I'd stain, not paint
Candy red would be a nice option.
That is already stained, BTW.
This is how it arrived..
What does your back look like?
You could do the natural back with the goldtop. If you didn't like it you could sand it back later.
I love the Reranch Goldtop I used on my Jr. It looks like the real deal & is affordable. The shipping is where they get you of course.
Not a big fan of spalted myself, although I have that SG Jr black limba in the works. I made an exception as it was such a steal.
Imma gonna rub one out.. I mean rub it out a bit more and see if I like it more.
This was cheap as well hence the salt, Patrick. I'm torn.
Michael's sells antique gold metallic paint in a lacquer base that isn't bad. I think there is a sample in this pic.
Yea that spalted top is sick symmetrical, I'd let the beauty shine through!
I don't like tops that aren't symmetrical, good symmetry is hard to find, yours is good!
Leave that top natural. Paint something else that is ugly. Or do what pleases you. It is yours .
Wow that is a cool top but ya gotta do what you gotta do...
It it were me I think I would leave it. You would be wasting a nice top IMO.
I can never bring myself to paint over interesting grain. That's nature's art.
^ This. Get what you want and go gold!
