This would look good with a gold burst edge.



Similar to what the originals look like when the pink burst faded.

I just watched the Invitation only Brad Paisley concert the other day.
He had a blue paisley, a pinkish/red paisley and couple others.
I thought the red one looked great, it was obviously a vintage one but the blue one was newer looking and looked awesome as well.
All the paisley's I saw him play had B benders in them too. Very Happy

Seriously, any of the more colorful ones would look killer.

I voted for red chiyogami. My second choice was cream.

I voted for the red chiyogami. i can see it with either the fiesta red, the MK white, or even a traditional pink. i have always liked the paisley tele's, yet the strats turn me off for some reason.

Blue Floral...use Bill's Blue Translucent Dye for the burst, top it off with the Metalspecks. I'll send you one of the blue skulls from my double-neck...use it for the headstock.

I shrunk the pattern by 50% and uploaded it to my photo host. Then in Kisekae Tele, under Body/Wood DIY, I uploaded the URL of the pattern, then added the burst with that feature of the program. Then Print Screen and paste into a photo editing program to be cropped. (I did the burst around the neck pickup in the photo editor). Trying different burst colors took longer than anything else.

I like this one better with the white burst edge and Warmoth thinline guard:

mark, thanks! that tool/website is tool cool. here's some ideas i got. photobucket was acting kooky earlier, i wasn't able to get back in and reduce the size of the pattern. but i like what i see here.

Most of them look pretty cool, but it's going to be kind of hard to tell without knowing the size of the print. I like the red chiyogami but I think it will look too busy if the pattern is too small. Do you mind sharing your source?
