I wanna see the new design. Best of luck on the build. I absolutely LOVE Firebirds. Would own one myself if I wasn't buying a new amp.

Hey! I was 13 only a few days ago, and I didn't think robot tuners were cool! I feel deeply offended. Just trolling

I think this alberker is on to something. Ditch the entire guitar and build the Tower of London.

...Looking forward to the final product.

that's pretty much case in point though mate the firebird X exists only for young kids to drool over and rich men who have more money than guitar ability :p

I decided to be stupid and go for paint. Nitro may be easier, I dunno.

Laziness. Did some touch ups on the sides. Waiting to get money for more supplies. I may post pics tomorrow if I get around to doing anything.

You can't tell because it still looks like shit, but I kinda sanded the sides. The glue is still on top because I never sanded it down either... that will get done...

By the way, new design: not all black. Chrome sides and chrome-middle thing that Firebirds have that's normally the neck because it's a neckthrough, but mine is bolt on. Going for an old black and chrome hotrod look.

Just came here to say

MOAR PICS



Keep it up man. Not such a fan of the guitar, but it looks hawt. That cut looks freaking great, all that's needed is just a nice finish IMO. Very surprised how good it came out being freehanded n all I would have no hope at all for something like that

EDIT: Oh and EMGs would be sooo sick :P
