so today i painted my strat copy's (Totocaster's ) pickguard.
here is result: http://toto.caucasus.net/toto.pics/100_2058.jpg

that's my first and only guitar and i allways try make this axe better! it's a problem to get good guitar in georgia (too expansive! ), so here is my strat copy for 170$ i've changed ugly stock pup's on SD's and now this guitar sound FANTASTIC!

I especially like the little pantheon of guitar gods you have pasted on the body. Cheers for the really cool guitar!

SDs:
Neck - Lil'59 (Fat, Not Muddy, Great PAF sound)
Middle - DuckBucker (it's 3+3 Single, Vintage Strat Sound with hum-cancelation)
Bridge - Hot Rails (fat, modern, bit distorted and very high output)

Re: New Totocaster! :)

i really like the pictures youve chosen, its not something i would do, but i still thinks it cool, and I really like your taste in music, but what no pictures of EVH? Great pickup arrangment, looks like a lower end fender, maybe you should have some crazy fretwork done to her to complete the package

Looks really nice. Installing a Floyd is not dangerous but it would be a lot of work in terms of routing.

I like it. It's a very cool color, and I like the job you did on the pickguard, it's very cool.

Somehow it reminds me of Bob Marley and Hendrix.
