Custom Mikro finally finished

Just got my Mikro back from my tech, and damn it turned out great!
Kept the stock pickups in it for now, but will get a SD screaming' demon
eventually. Hope you guys enjoy.

Re: Custom Mikro finally finished

I really want a short-scale guitar to add to the stable. Too bad there isn't a prestige Mikro out there. I'd guess the builds on the Mikro's are on the low end.

I really love the looks of the Fender Duo-Sonics, ever since seeing a custom dark green Paisley finish on YouTube. Great bluesey sounds.

Re: Custom Mikro finally finished

Thanks Penguin. Having the 540 done by next week. OMG it looks awesome
in person. I had to take some extra pics today and jizz over them.
The Mikro was something I was going to keep at work and play during
my planning period as a teacher. The original paint job was awful, and the
thing would not stay in tune to save it's life. Sperzels fixed that problem,
and eventually so will replacement pups.
Enjoy the color-shifting paint job.

Both new paint jobs look sweet. I dig the Lynch motif.
