I wasn't sure where to put this.  I was inspired by an Etsy post of a fabric-covered guitar (I'd link it but it is no longer up). My husband liked the idea so he volunteered one of his guitars. I don't have a before pic but it was just a plain black Strat-copy guitar. I used spray-on adhesive to attach the fabric and hand-sewed the perimeter. My husband picked the fabric. Total time: approx. 8 hours. On to the pictures:
Guitar Front


Guitar Back (temporarily missing back plate)


Guitar Top (rather than sewing in wedges in the contoured areas, I covered the missing wedges with decorative pieces)


Guitar Butt (though not needed, I also did a decorative piece, including my initials and the year)

That's really neat. Did you seal the fabric on top somehow? (I myself am a mod podge addict).

Thanks for the support, it was a really fun project. Now my husband wants me to cover his bass.
I have not sealed it, I like how it feels like fabric, though I am a little concerned about wear.

maybe a coat of clear Shellac would work. You'd still be able to feel the fabric texture (for the most part) and it would help protect the piece.
