We decided to have some fun with this guitar! Featuring a solid two piece Tasmanian Blackwood body, cut extra thin (32mm, or 1 1/4"), and a paint splatter finish. How did we achieve this look? Easy! We used straws to hold paint, then compressed air to blow the paint in the splatter all over the body. From there, we coated with a thin skin gloss coat, but rather than lay multiple coats on to bury the colour under clear, we wanted to achieve a textured finish to the gloss. If you look closely in the photos, you can see the stipple finish.
