The basics. We use a carve-burning and torching technique to achieve a unique style of pyrography akin to the art of tattoo on wood or leather. We can take imagery (photos, drawings, etc.) provided by you and translate them into a personalized piece or come up with a completely new design with your input.
We can refinish your guitar. This involves partially or completely removing the existing finish to add the pyro-engraved design. Fire is a natural part of the life of wood, representing strength and renewal. The BurnMethod hardens the wood, adding a complex tone all its own. A variety of stains and accent colors can be applied before the wood is sealed and waterproofed with a natural finish such as tung oil. We prefer not to use polymers, which compromise the tone of the guitar and prevent the wood from breathing and aging naturally over time.
From there, it's up to you. No matter the style or sound you're going for, we can easily match it to complete your piece!
