What´s the meaning of "photo flame" top?
It was a technique Fender used about 10 or so years ago to "create" a flamed or figured maple appearance on certain basses. In stead of actually using a laminate of flamed or quilted maple for the top, they "imprinted" a "photo" of a piece of figured maple on top of a piece of poplar...I think. Maybe it was basswood or something to that effect. Needless to say, it gave the look and appearance of a piece of figured wood, but wasn't actually a piece of figured maple. It looked reasonably convincing, especially once finished and from a distance....but it wasn't real. Think "Pam Anderson".
do you mean photo flame top?
I knew it was some kind of "fake" laminate...thanx a lot JPJ!!!!
P.S. The "Pam" example was very ilustrative
You are right hondo, sometimes I forget in english you use PH instead of F for that word.
