    Default Photo Finishing/Graphics

    Does anybody out there know what the process is or what equipment is used in this type of graphic work for guitars. I know that BC Rich is doing a lot of this and there is a company called creationguitars.com that is doing it on acoustics.

    I know some in here go to NAMM shows and wondered if anyone knew which way to direct me.

    Thanks!

    There's an interesting read about the process towards the bottom of this site:

    http://electricguitar.50megs.com/korina.htm

    Fender evidently treats the wood body with a silver halide emulsion (film) and exposes the image or "photo" directly on the body.

    Other manufacturers apply a super thin material to the body - which resembles a photo - thus giving the preocess "photo flame" its name.

    Most of these gitters look like the real thing these days
