Can we burst multiple colors?

Postby YaiiE » Tue Oct 03, 2017 11:37 am

Would it be possible to get a multi burst like the guitar linked below? I think swapping out the purple for Red and a thin black burst would be pure ... :stir:

If it’s doable any idea on the cost?

Thanks guys!!

You cant direct link to any of your PB links ... unless you pay them a high extortion fee!! :evil:
I *think* if you made a slide show, they haven't blocked those yet .. I think I linked to one I did and it was still "running".
Maybe that's the workaround? :shh:

I can’t remember what host I used the other day and it worked! Today I tried PB... And of course they want money. Forget that!! If I were at a computer I’d have just uploaded but I’m “working.” :mrgreen:

cubeupload man, all free. Like PB used to be. Just keep your images under 5mb a piece.

Imgur works, too, but it's a pain to get the direct links on mobile. They are 3 blocks away from my office, so I feel like giving them the fair shot. :lol:

I clicked on the link and that's a cool mock-up. So, what is the answer? Will Kiesel do that?

They might. They've done many multiple-color-bursts before...I think the most I've seen is a 3-color yellow/green/blue/black, but I can't seem to find it. Those in that posted example though look to me more like hand-rubbed dyes/stains than the sprayed-on bursts that Kiesel normally does. Knowing the amount they charge for other hand-applied finishes like that, I would have to assume it would start at $600 minimum, likely higher...but the only way to know is to call. Haven't seen anything exactly like that come out of the shop before...not that I've seen anyway.

All of those are stripes, though. When it gets to making the multiple layers of concentric bursts, you can run out of room quick with sprayed-on finishes unless you do the "sharpie bursts" we had last year.

Yeah I know, it's not the nebula type of cloud radiating outward with concentric burst circles, but at least it sorta shows they'll play w multicolor bursts. I'm sure if he threw enough dracma at Jeff he'd do it.

With lithium pickups of course. :lol:

Thanks for posting those, Doctor Turn. Yeah, I do remember seeing those "vertical bursts" on the FB page.

I can't see the photo so I'm not sure what you're asking for but I think Jeff will do it if you pay.

I'm fairly certain he'll do almost anything finish-wise unless he thinks it's so 'out there' and ugly that he's embarrassed to say he did it.

That's sort of the vibe I got from the live feed yesterday for what it's worth.

I'd say sky's the limit.

During the live Q&A he mentioned that there was a request that was so ugly he didn't want to do it. He did anyway but regrets it. Even the customer hated when it was done. :D

Given that he's apparently proud of the Venom burst that DocTurn posted above, as well as the unbelievably hideous "Rad Ash", and that new radiation-green burst that looks like it's based on the Mayonnes "juice burst" (which might be the ugliest guitar finish I've ever seen), I'm genuinely curious as to what was so ugly he didn't want to do it.

My curiousity got the best of me and now I think I'm gonna hurl (the punchline is over four grand for this hairball)...

A lot of work went into that, too. Those inner colors look like hand-applied stains.

I've seen several red-bursts in the past. I comes out nice if you get red-caliburst with a thin transparent black burst, or red stain with a thin transparent black burst.

Like Jeff says, "Call my guys and ask." :)
