I'm not entirely sure if putting this here is right, but here goes. I am building a 335 replica, and cant decide how to finish it. I think I want purple burst or something else purple based. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! [biggrin]

Well that would be unique as I don't think I've ever seen a purple 335.

Not sure what you are asking here. If you want it to be purple - go for it.

If you're asking how to finish it in purple - I have no idea. Bursts are tough to do and require quite a bit of skill and experience from what I've seen in videos about them being created.

Good luck with the project. [thumbup]

There was a guitar finishing and re-finishing website I used to look at occasionally that had a lot of good information.
Good luck. John

If you're building a FAKE Gibson, just exactly why are you asking for advise on the official Gibson website?
