Hi im new here so thought i would show of one of my projects, This is the end result of a guitar I have been building/refinishing. This is my fourth custom now. I did the finish the same way they do the Steve Vai Jem guitars. Using a Blind guardian shirt for the pattern, I glued it on, sealed it with sanding sealer, painted the sides black and glossed over.
My old man is a retired auto sprayer so I get him to help me, just to ensure a quality finish.
The original idea came from projectguitar.com
I modified the 21 fret body by adding huge cutaway's, this way I could mount the 24 fret neck and still have heaps of reach to the upper frets, and yes its intonation is perfect. The neck has been mounted closer to the bridge in the process.
Basswood body Strat style 21 fret I am 95% sure its basswood as its very light
