    The black top is a bold blank canvas. I’d recommend some photoshop mockups.
    I look at that black mando and keep thinking of a red rose, with green stem and a leaf or two, up on the arm ‘rest’. Why is that??

    MAS is Spanish for 'more', right?

    I'd say leave it alone. It's a beautiful Mandolin!

    I love Mandolins and have an old 70's Ibanez "lawsuit era" model. Whenever I am fiddling around with acoustic guitars, strumming something, creating a nice acoustic ballad, I just have to add a Mandolin in there too. :D

    How about a waterslide with the pinstripes on it. Something you could remove later if you wanted. What kind of finish is on the mandolin now?

  11. I’m thinking Hello Kitty. Ive been on a Hello Kitty kicks for a while. I’m having an octave mandolin built for me and cant decide if i want it engraved or not. Might be the kitty.

    Nitro is pretty durable if it is with a water slide you could try out a few designs to see how you like them. Get it painted on later if it is a keeper. Just a thought.
