hey Cn. I went to michaels craft store, they are a big chain out west, not sure how far they go.
I would have to double check, But I am fairly certain that it's real gold leaf, they had a wallspace about 4-5 feet long with all the glues and leaf, silver copper gold pewter too I think, and I did see some imitation stuff as well for about 4-5 bucks, I was looking at the most expensive stuff they had, I am sure it was real, but again, will double check. But even at 20 bucks I would still buy it and do a guitar with it.
I was looking for a book on how to do goldleaf, but didn't find one there. I wanna finnish a guitar like that now, gold or silver with buffed clearcoat
If you know a good link to teach me, would be much apreciated, the cool part is I showed my wife the pics of your guitar, and she said I should do one like that.
I was shocked, she already says I have too many guitars, LOL So thanks to you I have permission for a new guitar, rather than asking foregivness after the fact.
I will call it my cn special thanks John
