Did you see this thread:
I'd be a bit careful with Turquoise as it seems to come out differently on different wood species. The hue of the colour may have unwanted contrast. I wonder if "blue burst" would be an easier alternative. Yes I would use masked binding too.
Thanks for the feedback. There is a telecaster body available that has the perfect quilt maple lam top and has a roasted swamp ash body. However, I would think an all transparent turquoise without masked edges would just look off due to the much darker wood at the seam between lam and body. Maybe a masked edge would make that work.
I made a little mockup of the renderings Warmoth has to get some idea of what the guitar might come out looking like (knowing they could come out way different, but mostly just to get some general feel). I think maybe a turquoise dye could look really good, albeit a bit darker than what I was originally envisioning. Wondering if maybe turquoise dye w/ masked edge, transparent turquoise back could look good. Tough choices without being able to see many real life examples.
There's also a telecaster body that is quilt maple lam w/ white korina that looks good too, maybe it would be a better candidate for all trans turquoise since the body is lighter.
Guess I'm starting to think a masked edge is required with any option.
