    If it's for a girl, sure.

    Sparkly is generally not associated with male imagery.

    My initial reaction was "Hell no!" But, in all honesty, I think it would tie in nicely with the rest of the guitar.

    I like the simplicity of the sunflower as is, though. Seems like putting something shiny on top of it would cheapen it.

    You don't need our opinions.

    If you like it, do it. It doesn't matter to me either way... and I mean that in the nicest possible way. :)

    Lovely guitar and a good job on the build. My first thought was no but then when you posted pics of the whole guitar I can see how it would match. Maybe some blue tac to hold them in place while you assess. Does your wife have an opinion?

    No. Absolutely not. She doesn’t get a say. If I involve her in the guitar choices where does the nonsense end? Kidding. I’m kidding. She actually likes the idea.

    I have an Ibanez Artcore jazzbox with a matt finish which my wife loves the look of. She actually suggested it could stay in the living room permanently. I'm sure she thinks it's a piece of furniture.

    haha. My music room is half mine half hers. So she tolerates it at least. But she does have a special attraction to this Guitar understandably. But also in part it’s my first Parts guitar. So she got to see the whole process.

    That's a beautiful guitar as-is. Maybe just fill the entire center of the sunflower with the stones for an understated, eye catching effect. The color of the stones is perfect for that.

    I guess I didn’t clarify in the original post. But that was my idea. Just the brown part in the center of the flower. Not the whole thing

    Sorry for your loss. Beautiful guitar build. I voted no on the rhinestones, but the colors match. I'd say do what makes you happy.

    Ok. Love it or hate it!! It’s two sided tape. Real easy to take off. But got a couple pics.

    Will definitely spend more time to get more even placement when/if I do glue them. This is just to clarify my idea and a better idea of it.

    The material of the sticker decal actually reflects the light as well. It almost glows when the light hits it. (Probably not the best word to describe it.) But it’s kind of reflective. I kinda think I like the glow of the sticker with the twinkle of the stones.

    Yes! Those rhinestones would look great with that sunburst finish. Ignore the nay-sayers. Real men aren't afraid of a little sparkle.

    Beautiful guitar BTW!

    thanks man! And yea I like it even more seeing them taped to it. I’d probably end up going all brown tho (like the pics) and just let the light highlight the different color tones. After seeing it (and trying it) with the yellow stones. It was too much IMO.
