Basically, I'm taking off the round edges, making things more pointy, filling in bridge and jack cavities and puttin in a hardtail, changing the tuners to locking tuners, changing the headstock to an ibanez shape, and repainting.

Neck and Body - already had
Maple to plug cavities - already had

It sounds crazy for me to say this, but i didn't get much accomplished last week to to a SNOWSTORM in Louisiana. It's insane. But the snow is gone now and so i decided to make some headway today.
I got the full body rough cut and rough sanded and i rough cut the headstock. It's really starting to take shape.





I'm gonna cut the new pickguard out tomorrow and hopefully get the body sanded. I'll be able to get a lot done this week because I have half days due to midterm exams. hope to finish this up by the end of christmas break.

that looks awesome
and I got something that really will blow your mind
where I live, a desert, in WASHINGTON, we get less precipitation annually than Pheonix Arizona (we get 6") and in one day it just pours snow and snows like 3 inches and its like 15 degrees out
yesterday it was like 40, and clear
as I said before, it looks amazing, I'd just like put a clear coat on it right now it would look sick, and you are inspiring me to modify MY old guitar lol

thanks but on the topic of finishing, i'm hoping to do a crazy 80's neon yellow, orange, or pink with led's. what's everyone's thoughts?

also i think i might do a monkey grip like on a JEM. any thoughts?

I apologise unreservedly for that, I promise that's my last immature post! I'm twice as old as most of the users on this forum as well...

Back to your guitar, I once gigged with a band who's guitarist had a neon pink JEM with a paisley pattern scratchplate. Looked horrific, but I couldn't take my eyes off it.

print screen on kisekae isn't working for me but i'm really liking my neon yellow idea. it looks crazy.

Looks nice, I think you should make the headstock a little more agressive ie. sand the points sharper


So wait, you guys got snow storms down there, and all we get is flurries up here? (Im in Virginia)
#19
i totally agree with you about the headstock. it's just a rough cut right now. it will be sharper.

yea, it was one of the strangest things i've ever seen. I woke up to go to school and saw my yard with a fresh blanket of snow. needless to say i didn't go to school that day. :P

Pfft snowstorm in Louisiana. You don't even know what a snow storm is until you've lived in the great plains.



Looking good though! I like it pointy.
