My Oz Fox (Stryper) Replica.....

Here's my latest project. I have always liked Stryper and wanted to try my hand at Oz Fox's paint scheme of his Jackson soloist from back in the day.
I only did the front as this was my 1st try using automotive paint products(base/clear) and didn't want to have a bunch of time invested in drawing out the whole guitar (his had artwork in the sides,back,back of the neck, and headstock) and have a huge mistake happen during the wet sand and buffing process, that would have sucked. I will probably try the whole thing on another guitar in the fall now that I know what to expect. Some of the black line work isn't perfect, but for my 1st attempt, I'm satisfied I guess....
Oh, I sprayed everything outside...

***It has a real Floyd and a super nice IBZ USA F3 pickup that I scored on the bay a few weeks ago

Here's some pics:

I 1st saw them in 1986 on the Soldiers Under Command tour, I don't remember who opened up for them though...I also saw them on the To Hell With The Devil tour, Loudness opened up for them (they were GREAT!!)

Re: My Oz Fox (Stryper) Replica.....

Thanks for all the kind words guys. I just got done jamming to 10-15 vai/satch tracks and this thing screams, plays real nice as well.
Oh, does anyone have any idea what brand this thing is? I bought it cheap off ebay and it has no logos on it anyplace. It had a stop tail piece (I routed it out for the floyd)

Heck, $58 to the door was a steal....
If I ever decide to sell it, it's yours....

Heh, no kidding. I didn't snipe to be sneaky, I just didn't want to stir the pot. That thing could've easily gone for $75. I told my wife some guy out there is swearing at me right now, lol. I won't lie and say my dreams weren't crushed a little that day, thought I had it in the bag!
