Yeah man, I would be registering a business name and number and go into some custom guitar paint jobs as a side job. A lot of people want custom graphics on their guitar, band logos and the like, and end up using stickers which peel and fade over time. I saw this JS1000 model on eBay, where they had airbrushed sonic the hedgehog logos on, then put a coat of clear over the top to seal it in. Not that I like sonic, but it added that personalised touch to a guitar. It would help pay off your gear anyway

So whats Donate Life anywho? A non-profit you are associated with or something?
donate life is the logo for the midwest organ and tissue donation foundation. their logo is on their site. i think it was a national campaign to raise awareness for organ and tissue donation. They even did a spanish one..... Done Vida! More info to follow upon completion of my project.... I am associated with them, but not in a business sense, at least not for the reasons for this project.

i have 2 more cavity covers to complete, each of them very different.

Re: custom painted (by me) cavity cover for my project RG

no that is not dust.... it is a glitter effect that i put into the clear coat!

this was a long and expensive project, i bought an airbrush, air compressor (needed a reason to buy one anyway) and alot of different paints searching for the right ones... i still need to wet sand and polish it but it is pretty clear right now!

what do you think????
