I have an idea which I am wondering if anyone here has ever tried. I have seen videos where people transfer images to wood with modge podge. My thought was to find a guitar online that suits my taste, invert it and print it large enough (likely at a print shop) to cover the face of an old plywood strat I am working on. Kind of faking a laminate top to a degree. Then a nice coat of clear to finish.

If you don't know what I am speaking of, you basically glue an image face down, and then wet and rub the paper baking off once it is dry.

Just considering this as an option for refinishing cheaper guitars.

With modge podge, I feel it would make a cheap guitar look cheaper as I have never seen modge podge where a picture/image has great definition. If a classic picture can be done with modge podge, that may be different.

Water slide decal with a clear coat would probably look better
