Alright, I have a black korina hollow strat body that came with an f-hole.  It was a showcase piece, but the f-hole grew on me over time, so I ordered it.  I am going to do the pup and electronic routes up in conductive paint.  The question I have is:  should I blacken out the depths of the f-hole?

:rock-on:

It would depend on the finish for me, my f-holed Tele is REALLY red, so the natural looks okay.

The finish is hard to describe.  It is like tobacco burst without the burst, if that makes any sense.  The top is a subtle flamed black korina.

On my Tobaccoburst Black Korina Tele Thinline, which is probably quite similar in finish to yours, I chose to leave it au naturale.  Of course, I went back and forth about blackening it for a bit first, so all I can say is that the right thing for you to do will come to you!

Dude, you are f***cked up!  Where is that ROTFL icon?  Maybe a bit of basil would grow well in it.

Didn't vote, as it could go either way depending on the finish. How do you plan on finishing it?

Already finished.  Tobacco burst, without the burst...if that makes any sense. :dontknow:

Chia strat is not a bad idea.  Sort of a George of the Jungle meets Z.Z. Top thing...

Still dying about the chia pet thing...just imagining the guitar with sprouts from the f-hole..LOL, perhaps that should have been an option in the poll.  :toothy12:

Factory finish? Didn't the burst get sprayed in the f-hole(s)?
