@mrk5

we talked about this last winter a bit.

Can you match this color and pattern in a “wrap” for just the white section? I can remove that plate so we can match the shape

They don’t have that color, they have straight up purple or pink, but nothing between. Even emailed already

How about getting some wood veneer, then dying and cutting it yourself? You could get some nice maple burl and it would look a lot like that pearl. Curly maple would look good too, like a Les Paul.

That’s a heck of an idea I had not considered, and part of why I posted.
I’ll look into that

I bought me a new to me amp a couple of weeks ago. Vox 15 R Pathfinder. It has a cool tremolo and reverb. Nails that swampy CCR tone. I call it my poor mans Princeton! Lol

Found that one and a pink one, nothing in between.
I dug for blank sheets before but couldn't find the right color (been actually looking for about 5 years...)

All the wood ones I've found so far are overseas. Nothing wrong with that as long as it survives the ride

Saw a site called Dragonfire guitars. They have many colors to choose from. I haven't looked for parts in a long time. Kinda miss it

That's a good color.

We need to get a meet & greet jam session going.
That’d be a good time, especially since several of us have similar tastes in music!

I’ll probably do some test samples. I still have the “peacock blue” from that project. I ordered the magenta for this
