Thanks!

In the future I plan to do a similar paintjob with different colors. Any suggestions, people?

Yea, I'm trying to rely as little as I can on other people since I paid a ridiculous amount getting my Tele wired.

I think if you did multiple shades of grey and black overlapping each other with the rip design it would look cool.

I know, that sucks. Fortunately, I've only had to pay someone once for something other than parts, but I don't plan on ever doing it again. That's why I've read all I could about setting them up and everything.

I need to read up more. I'm going to get my old Warlock back and do wiring and refinishing practice and whatever else I can think of. What would you think of a natural warlock with a nice stain?

Oh, try a black guitar with rips of stained wood. It would be like the wood is fighting back haha

Haha, your Warlock would certainly look different, I believe I've seen something similar, Exotic series or something of the sort? I'm not familiar with B.C. Rich.

Your two ideas for a new paint job are actually really sweet. I think I may have to do the grey/black idea you had there, that would look sexy as hell!

They make an Exotic series Bich but that's all I know of. I don't think the agathis would stain well but I'll try something.

The two tone razorbacks came to mind but more artistic and whatnot.


EDIT: I wouldn't mind seeing a cool stain color then stain over that with the rips for a ripped/tiger look. Maybe something with a deep amber color and a yellow burst type thing with the rips centering on that, connecting, whatever. Like a hole that's sucking the yellow in to it.

Do that same paint job but with purple and yellow, on an RG, and with matching dimarzios and black hardware. Dang, I would be all over that!

I suppose that I am allowed to necrobump my own customization thread, right?

Ended up finishing the re-customization of this on New Year, thought I may as well update this. I like this look a lot better, but unfortunately I had the paint done by a friend of mine who works at an Auto Body shop and didn't do that myself.



I'll upload some better pictures tomorrow. This one does not accurately show the color or the amount of metallic flake.

X2N in the bridge, Ibanez INF3 neck (for now). Ibanez tuners, cheap eBay floyd/knobs/switch. Truss rod cover? MIA.

Updated so why not bump?

Just got the neck and haven't set up the instrument yet. The floyd is not flush because a battery is propping it up. If my tuner wasn't conveniently dead I'd have the floyd up to tension.

I do hope so. They're not far from contending, they just need to continue to build and not do the usual 1 step forward, 2 steps back routine.

And thank you! I see you have a Supreme 160. I loved mine. So damn heavy, but sounded so good.

Really thinking I'm going to have to get some black bevels done on this bad boy. Would look great with the binding on the neck.

yeah i love mine (aside from the ton it weighs). I hope they keep bush too he has so much potential if he stays healthy. And the bevels are a great a idea. I would love to hear how it sounds.

The DK2M neck is a bit fatter than the previous necks which is disappointing. Sure I'll get used to it though.
---------------
I had mine paired with a Peavey 5150 slant cab. Really wish I never downsized, but as we agree, it has some serious weight. That setup was such a hassle.

I think Bush is must sign. While I think Miller could successfully take his spot in the backfield, I think Bush is more of a threat at this point and seems to be coming into his own as a leader. The team also struggles to get butts in the seats and guys like Bush are the ones that remedy that. HBs in their late 20s aren't in high demand so I don't think it'll be too difficult to retain him though.
