Finished Charvel Project (NGD)

Well guys I embarked on a journey I thought I never would. I recently bought an early 90's fusion and dirt cheap really. It was kind of beat up and I was having some issues especially with the trem. Initially, I was going to leave it as is, but I quickly changed my mind and decided that I would totally remodel it. It came with an evolution pickup and some other dimarzio single coil. I ripped those out and ordered an X2N and Tone Zone S, cuz I was heavily influenced by Michael Romeos guitar. I upgraded the hardware and all electronics and changed the hardware to black. I swapped out the Schaller FR for an OFR and am not regretting it BTW. I got some black charvel tuning pegs off the bay for cheap. And the new color speaks for itself. I was really nervous about this project cuz it required some skills I had never practiced. the worst being having to modify the single coil route and the OFR route to accomodate for the longer bolts. Here are some pictures on how this guitar evolved into what it is now. Enjoy the "yellow and black attack" haha. Final note, if I could do this, anyone can.

Love the paint job, but I fancy the "Toothpaste" Charvel logo immensely over the "Guitar" shape logo...

Haha, well I tried to get my hands on one and when I finally found one online the guy was asking way too much for it. I would've preferred it too.
