Refinish ideas

I have a guitar I am going to re-finish and update but am looking for suggestions.

First I was considering doing the top with the face of Regan from the Exorcist. But in truth its so cliche with 'look how evil and scary I am' tard guitar players out there. I still think it would be cool, but only because I like the movie.

That being said....

Bob Denver as Gilligan or Don Knotts face guitar????
Maybe a Godfather or Scarface guitar???

Anyone have any suggestions or comments???\

Are you asking to strangers what graphics YOUR guitar should have?

well, yes!

Truth is I have no fondness for this guitar. I acquired it when I worked at Peavey guitar R&D and its been hacked on quite a bit (*I dont even know HOW I come to have it). The guitar is a Peavey Tracer and looks as if they were testing what needed to be done to update the CNC routing to install a floyd type trem from what they had been using.

It says R&D on the inside of the neck pocket and is signed 'JBD' <he was chief engineer at the time, now he is with Gibson.

THe body is solid poplar and is structurally perfect. It has exact dimensions of a strat less it is a 24 fret.

I intend on installing a new Floyd, maybe some Evo or Joe PUs (H-S), flattening out the neck, reshaping the headstock for a little update and finishing the body.

Basically I am going to take a no frills, nothing special who cares guitar and turning it into something awesome.....and do it for >3-4$ hundred.


This being said I am VERY open for suggestions for what would be cool or funny. I dont want to do something that has been done before; for some reason I think I have seen a Regan guitar somewhere.


I do like the suggestion of my own face....I am after all VERY handsome (*Like crazy Brad Pitt handsome).


Maybe a Brobee from Yo Gabba guitar??? This is my 2yo suggestion...in truth, not the worst I have heard....

You know what I'd love to see, and I don't think I've seen one before. One with The Phantom on it. A black background with the Phantom's face would look way cool I reckon.

For cool, maybe Voltron or Robotech.
For funny, Bill & Ted (excellent!!), Jetsons, Flintstones.

I like the Mr Magoo idea as well as Gilligan.... Considering we only recently lost the great porn star, what about Harry Reems' moustache??
