I just bought a used Boden Metal 8. I super don't care for the white pearl finish. The current plan is to strip it and potentially make a nice flamed or quilted maple top for it. The site says it's basswood with a 1/4" maple top. Has anyone seen the quality of the wood under the paint? I know it's not gonna be some nice figured piece. I won't be home for a few months or I'd just go ahead and see what's underneath.
