Interesting - I stand corrected.

I did put a veneer top on that Jackson I was trying to refinish - and used (2) 50 pound bags of sand to apply it to the contour.

I'm wondering if they do it at the factory under a vacuum... I know Parker uses a vacuum and heat system to bond the carbon fiber exoskeleton to the wood of the body and neck. It's possible that if you put the veneer on a carved body, and then into some form of vacuum bag to maintain the pressure over the contours...



And here's a nice thread about a similar project as yours:

Hey! This looks nice, mate! It reminds me of one of Ben's guitars, with just one bucker! wink.gif
