Very cool man. I really dig the vintage burst look. Excellent subject matter and great choices on the prints.

I'd love to hear more about the process....... with lots of gory detail!!!

Thanks guys.

I am pretty happy as this is my first customer guitar job. Up till now i mostly have done metal/anime themed guitars so it was a pleasant change from the normal.

Thanks!

That ship one is a shred machine. It was a 24 fret fr body that i converted to 21 fret hardtail.:mrgreen: The extra space is just enough for a single sized pickup and the best part is the bridge bolts down into the actually wood not the plugged area,

And here is what that guitar looked like before i decided it needed the extra pup and graphics. The white did look good but i just wasnt happy with it
