So I scored on a beater McRosie the other day. If got flung across the floor in a domestic dispute.

Today I whacked a hole in it to install a 2Tek bridge.

The problem is, I don't know what kind of paint job to put on it now!

Silver bass boat sparkle with an appletini green, wrap-around, burst.

I would go for this (borrowed from TGS's website):

http://www.theguitarshop.ca/product_images/9ba09c1cd369efda5c9f6ad23fc51a32.jpg

The McRosie seems to have a nice flame that needs to be stained black (and the re-sanded) in order to bring it to life.
The wrap around burst should cover the filled dings...

I'm thinking about doing a Goldtop on this, but with the edge damage, I'm not sure I can leave the maple binding. Does anyone have any cool finish ideas for me?

Goldtop
06-04-2012, 07:21 PM
So I scooped up this McRosie that had been damaged in a domestic dispute. I understand that the significant other heaved it across the floor. It sustained some pretty good edge chips and such, but was available for a price that I could not pass up.

Just out of curiosity, would you happen to know when the former owner of this guitar is up for parole? I'd like to appear at the hearing to speak on their behalf.

Do what I did with the 'Cobra Jet' guitar mike, but make the colors match the RR, i.e. paint the body a matching green, with a flat black stripe in the middle!

Z - If you're going to go with an opaque color, I've always liked Silverburst (like on the Les Paul Custom except not teardrop). There was a Singlecut Hollowbody out there PRS did in a non-teardrop Silverburst and it looked fantastic.

http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f79/choag82/PRSSB.jpg

Stained Charcoal Burst might be cool, too.

I don't think there is enough figure in the wood to do a stained top, especially considering the two holes that need to be plugged.

Traded it for my Supercharged Jag, which is my daily driver... bought it back with a blown engine for half of what I sold it for. (happened to have a spare 429 in the shed) :)

Don't hate, playa. I think a Vintage Cherry stain on the RW neck would be unique.

The finish worked-out pretty neat on Rosewood Limited necks and that was before thinner V12 was developed.

To late for this project...but....

Your buddy Ron Thorn does gold leaf...here is an example. I imagine that it is VERY expensive to have this done.
