first project!! jackson JS1R body to custom thing

this is the body i have to work with and i have a loooooooooong road ahead of me but hey, gotta start this kinda stuff sometime right? i had to post body pics only because honestly, this guitar is embarassing (especially the neck) so i didnt want to show the rest.

PS, sorry for the webcam pics, cant find my cam right now





too bad the detail is so bad in the pics, i really wish you guys could see how bad this thing really is. but im going to make it great!!! (hopefully).

sanding starts tomorrow

Re: first project!! jackson JS1R body to custom thing

sanding is finished!!! still cant find that camera

anyway, if any of you are looking to make a LNG type guitar color but dont feel like mixing colors and just want quick results? try this, its like LNG in a can (im NOT going for a LNG copy by the way. i just love green)

Re: first project!! jackson JS1R body to custom thing

straight to the paper!!! im old school like that!!! and ive always loved green. it was between that and pink but im making this guitar for punk so pink would look to '80's rock and yellow is just too common now so i think thats got a bit to do with me painting it. but ill post ONE picture of the neck (not the one im actually using for the project. thats ganna be a 24 fret) and one onl

I wonder how long you could make a single sentence if that sentence were to be only about one particular thing and not really ramble on too much about that one thing then you wouldnt have to use any punctuation or breaks of any sort in that sentence would you.......

The tuition money is really paying itself off.............lol

2 1/8" sounds like OFR territory......... would be WAY COOL non-recessed. Very old-school!!!

Thats the point of non-recessed, no pull-up.
