    Hey don’t rush a brother from East Anglia!

    This is a craftsman at work, he’s got a real neck cradle and knows how to apply masking tape!;)

    @ScottR you’re a liar man, you live with a red, that takes real guts!:D

    I knew the veneers were thin, but I didn't know they were that easy to remove. I've wanted a plain maple PRS for a while. Makes some of those used ZMs at Dave's look even better.

    The beauty of a hot air gun, a steady hand and a “cast iron” constitution!

    Yes, indeed I do...don't let the smile lull you into a false sense of safety...that's how she got me...cropped out the butcher knife...see the uncanny resemblance?

    Don’t you dare repeat this to her!

    I looked at the photo and I heard -

    “Hey Scotty, do you want your boat back?”

    Sorry all!! :confused: That wasn't an intentional teaser, I got called away with work....anwyay....I'm back....

    So, I took the veneer completely off and this is what was underneath....

    As you can see, two of the pieces of mahogany are of similar grain, and one is quite different. Sad times for creating a nice uniformed top.

    Time to consider my options: paint the top a solid colour, paint the top a crazy design or airbrush it, get one of those full body decals, stain it one dark colour, stain it a translucent colour or stain it with a burst type finish. o_O

    There’s some very nice veneers out there for not a lot of pennies and probably cheaper than several layers of paint.

    Just saying “for a friend” :D
