Help me decide ...

I just got this Les Paul copy today from an auction I won last week.


I bought it to have a little fun painting an inexpensive guitar.
(I won it for $66 bux)
It actually plays pretty darn good!!! And doesnt sound that bad either.

Anyway,

I definately want to try to reproduce a popular guitar that people know
at first sight.
I've pretty much come to the conclusion to do
either
Zakk W. Bullseye

Or
Zakks Rebel Flag


Comments?
Any others that are on that level of being recognizable
that I should concider?

Pics are a good thing!

I say the bullseye, I'm fond of the camo bullseye but you'd need a maple neck but go with the first one

Re: Help me decide ...

Weel, as your guitar doesn't have binding, it's not gonna look quite like the two you are looking to re-create. I say go another direction, and do something else, like a three-tone camo: White, light grey, and medium grey, maybe.

you'd be surprised..
if you tape off the area where there "would" be binding..so the black circles dont go totally to the edge..but theres a solid white stripe around the guitar
and then put a thin black line in the center of that white section
it looks pretty good.

I didnt do it..
Ive seen it done.
I'll try to find a pic.

yes i realize this isnt going to be exact..
its a $60 dollar guitar. No matter what paint job is done..i will be
moving the input jack to the side though.


Are there any more famous Les Pauls out there im forgetting about?
