    Wow, that is kinda cool, but hate to waste any of my powder, need all I can get for the zombies.

    Interesting technique indeed. Not real fond of the scorched look on the face of the guitar, but I really like the lines of the bridge, heel, and especially the tuning head.

    Vaughn, bet that would look good over purple
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    That scorched finish looks just plain ugly to me. Eye of the beholder, I guess. Have to wonder what kind of "gunpowder" was used. I suspect it was really black powder as many modern reloading powders will not flare like that when a match flame is put to them.

    Agreed on all points. I wonder if the finish looks better in person than it does in the videos. And it's been a long time since I tried to light any gunpowder with a match, but in my misspent youth I did learn that it doesn't always respond the way they show it in cowboy and pirate movies.
