Diamond Plate Chrome Guitar

I just finished this custom build. The body was cut out with a diamond plate pattern.
The paint is chrome with a lot of clear.
Enjoy the pictures.

Re: Diamond Plate Chrome Guitar

Great idea and it looks really nice. I've seen these done with just the unfinished plate and they look crap.
Any pics of the sides ?

It looks really cool, but why didn't you continue the carving over the contour?

Wow, freakin' wow!

That is a really cool guitar and along the lines of a Jackson I saw many, many years ago called the Area 51 (or it could have been an ESP). Very well done.

Looks sweet...how did you get the chrome paint to come out? I have tried several different types and methods of application and none of them have turned out.

I think it would be hard on your arm. I didn't cut the body, it was sent to me.

I like how the contour fades it out. more functional but I like the way it looks too

So you have pics of the rest of the neck? Very interesting inlays.
