Making A Guitar New Again

One of our customers took his 1988 Ibanez 540R guitar which was in rough shape but still played great…and made it look new again. All it took was a little bit of DI-NOC vinyl and he was able to refinish his guitar bringing it up-to-date with a new carbon fiber look.\r\n\r\n

\r\n\r\nThis is a great example of a non-automotive use for DI-NOC, there are just an infinite number of applications out there.  Suffices to say, this customer is hooked.  What kind of unique wraps have you done?

Carbon Fiber Vinyl Gets In The Game…Guitar Hero That Is

We just love when we get e-mails from our customers that have installed 3M’s carbon fiber DI-NOC vinyl on a unique item. This time around Rod took his Playstation 3 guitar for Guitar Hero, and wrapped it with the film:\r\n\r\n

\r\n\r\nHe did a great job, and because of the flat surface, it looks like it was pretty easy to do. The hardest part would be doing a clean cut of the material to match the guitar shape.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nRod is a musician and does plan on wrapping his real acoustic guitar. He had really great things to say about the material:\r\n

What I like the most about the material is that is very forgiven and easy to use…. just apply some heat and your can do whatever you like. I used the rest of my material for small things like my credit card and office mouse. The quality of the vinyl is really superb and it looks really nice!\r\n\r\nWhen wrapping the guitar hero guitar with the vinyl, be sure to completely remove the faceplate for easier installation and better finishing.\r\n\r\nBehind the guitar there is a button to easily unlock and remove the faceplate.
