Sorry for the double post. This body is my practice piece. jb, ur correct as more than half of it needed brushing for touch ups. Even tho it is a 97 MIK RG 470, it still deserves better than being the doorstop it was used for when I found it.
I don't have any delusions of turning it into a prestige, but I'd like to make it a cool little axe to gift a friend or to gig with occasionally. Ya know, try to put a little soul on it!
Tbh, the pics don't do it justice. The enamels I used for brushing are so bright it might induce seizures with the current paint job. I do however appreciate the feedback from you guys. I can't tell you how nice it is to have a forum like this for bouncing ideas, opinions, etc off fellow string heads.
I think I'm gonna go ahead and give it the old mineral spirits suck-eraser. Maybe try again with some magic marble or swirling the spray enamels like I've read on other threads. Thanks again for the feedback! It's always welcome and I'm thick-skinned so if I post one that induces nausea or just hurts to look at, don't be afraid to tell me.
And just be thankful I didn't post a vid of my playing! That'd really offend some sensibilities
