Did you try to emulate steve Vai's green meanie where he used a screwdriver to dig out the wood under the trem?. Anyway, looks cool. ;D

Looking good... You did a good job on the monkey grip. Must have some good woodworking tools.

Re: Big Purple Bad Ass JEMized!

I made a Duplicarver out of wood and attached my Porter-Cable Router to it with a round nose bit.
I don't have a paint setup, I'll just tape it off and spray it black in the claw and grip I guess. It looks scraped out because I didn't go below the original surface with the router at the tip of each scoop of the claw, I didn't want to go too deep.
