Hey folks,

I'm curious about what recommendations people have for shining a light inside of a guitar to trace the top bracing. Some bulbs get pretty hot, and the last thing I want to do is damage my guitar. It seems like a pretty common practice, so what's the best way to do it? Thanks.

get one of those lights they sell on television where you can stick them up anywhere and they do not get hot.

Low wattage cool fluorescent bulbs work pretty well. I got a couple at Ikea with some cords with sockets and plugs.

yea for ikea--and while there get yourself a cinnamon roll and their chocolate bar. man, i forgot about them even though i have a small ikea light with the flexibel goose neck. i think i paid about $10 or less for it.

Thanks for the info. I think I'll try the fluorescent lights and see how it turns out.

I would put in a 250w PAR flood and give the inside a suntan !

Ikea have also led strips that work well but a low wattage energ saving bulb is fine.
