Aye dude, that is sweet! Did you do the paisley finish yourself? With the inlay in the neck too it's beautiful. Congrats, enjoy and thanks for posting!

Re: finally together and very playable '87 rg 550

yeah I always loved the old paisley strats and teleez....... thought i would try to do one less girly and more on the dark side. after doing it i'm not sure I would do it again. It was kind of a pain in the ass.... I think it paid off in the end with a sweet looking guitar

sadly the inlays are stick on (wish they were real) but they look good anyway

thanks for the reply

I just remembered I used a UV sensitive paint under the fabric, hoping it would glow a little in the right light... it might glow a lot.

very nice work - UV Paint sounds like a great idea - get pics up when you can.
