My updated George Lynch Skull and Bones Guitar

I built the first one earlier this year but was not happy with a few things. I have since improved the CG file and the carving (mainly the face and head) and wanted to share what I think is the most accurate replica of the original bones guitar J.Frog built back in 1986. This took a ton of research and test carves to get something that is this close.

Re: My updated George Lynch Skull and Bones Guitar

Great work. I remember wanting that guitar so badly when I first was learning to play! Still looks pretty darn cool!

Re: My updated George Lynch Skull and Bones Guitar

I always thought that was a cool guitar! But because now we are not in the '80s, don't put the banana looking headstock on it! I think a fender strat headstock would look cool. If you can do that I may be interested in one from you.

Lokks great but I'd have to say (unlike the poster above) please don't forget to use the banana headstock.

Great job.

You should build some to sell HINT HINT.

With all due respect to his opinion...please ignore it

I'd love to see an exact replica.
