Pics of satin translucent finishes on neck throughs, without top wood?

Postby purpleyam » Fri Jun 09, 2017 10:43 pm

Hey Guys!

Newbie here and thinking about ordering a Vader in a translucent finish and wanted to see if any of you ordered one without a top wood (neck showing through). Particularly interested in purple, night burst and teal but feel free to post any translucent finishes. Haven't decided if I want the satin or gloss so hopefully this will help me decide. Doesn't have to be a Vader, any neck through with a trans finish will do.

Thanks!

I'll be able to in about 8-10 weeks. Ordered a Satin Nightburst over the stock Alder/Maple X54 with no top. Added a thin Blackburst edge, too....

Would love to see some pics of existing builds as well, though. Post 'em if you got 'em, folks!

Well, here's my Vintage Yellow DC727 with gloss maple body, mahogany/maple neck. Tung-oiled back of neck. Pics aren't the greatest.
