I already have 2 friends I've made on facebook from here that I've put onto the man for some of these plates. He also makes metal pickguards, headcover plates, heel plates, all covers.....anything you please with any design you please. I'm thinking about taking off my marshall logo on my amp and replacing it with a metal plate of our band name. The possibilities are endless with his stuff. Incredible.
thats freaking cool. Im looking into making a guitar, i guess i can have him make a trem cover, neck plate, and a electronics rout cover?

He's indonesian and only wanted to charge me like $8.50 AUS to make it, and saying things like "I can make it cheaper if you don't like the price!" ....... I paid him $40. The thing is worth it. I guess $8.50 is a lot to them and his work is impeccable so worth much much more than he requests.

I even passed on the info to Steve Vai himself. He was fascinated by it and was talking about getting some made to pass out at concerts and stuff. I hope my Indonesian friend gets some work from him.

dude, i was just about to say that the back plate did it all of me. I will get around to PMing you sometime in the future about that, cuz it looks freaking outstanding.

I dont believe i have commented on your amazing guitar yet either, although i have been watching it for some time now. I love the work, and im glad you got to go to steve himself with it.

Congrats Macka on this amazing piece of artwork.

also, what does the original picture look like for that backplate?
