In the event you would have to do some fitting to put the OFR in, maybe it should have been done before it was painted
Looks nice though, looks a little orange peely, but the squiggly lines break up all the straight and add a nice touch.
Thanks guys for the nice comments
and the help on the tremolo
It definately still has the "orange peel" effect right now because of all the different layers.
But as I mentioned i have 9 coats of clear which built it up nicely so when I wetsand it there will be plenty of clear left over and be perfectly smooth.
I'm going to let it cure though for another week before I do that.
I might have to resort to using the original nut...and
the original posts. (came to that conclusion last night).
They both seem in "ok" condition, but they aren't chrome but more
of that black chrome look.
The only part of this that im a little leary doing (but have no choice)
is i have to paint the pickups. terribly faded pink pickups just arent going to work, but im not giving um up! I've always loved the sound of the paf pro's.
I already painted the cover for the single coil (you can see it in the pic)
but that was the easy one. (just a slip off cover)
The HB's are going to be tricky.
