Charvel 3DR customised with cracle finish and LED's

I just finished customising my Charvel 3DR. I got this off Ebay last year refinished it in crackle and just added a rough clear coat.
I finally got around to finishing the clear coat. loads of sanding between coats. I then fitted some led's into the neck.

Re: Charvel 3DR customised with cracle finish and LED's

did you do the crackle yourself??

that thing is a stunner! reminds me of going to the music store for lessons in the 80's and drooling over axes like this. just awesome.

The is awesome. I have that same guitar with a factory crackle, but obviously no bad azz leds. Great job making it look like an original crackle by the way!

Re: Charvel 3DR customised with cracle finish and LED's

Thanks guys. Some of you guys may know I do refinishes mainly swirls. This crackle was a first attempt, at first I wasnt all that happy as I wanted far bigger crackles. but this has been a big learner for me, the more black you put on the bigger the crackle!!!!

I know what you mean about drooling over the guitars back in the 80s.

I think this is is a great guitar, the mods are:

6 X Small Grover kidney tuners.
Kahler quick release locking nut.
EMG Active Pickups.
Schaller floyd rose tremolo.
and.............. RED LED's.
