Rap is music,far better than metal for example. id much rather hear about hoes and anal sex than dragons and supressed homosexuality.

Yowza.
That is straight-up badass.
If I wasn't flat broke, I would definitely pay good money for something painted like that.

Dude, that might just be the sickest thing I've seen all day.
Then again, that's not saying much- I've been with my 80 year old aunt all day *gags*
But it was a compliment, in any case.

There's a good blues set of 'buckers by Seymour Duncan that I've heard are pretty good. You wanna give those a go?

EDIT: Goddam, that was just a little bit repetitive...

Wow nice job on those graphics! To be honest, not my style, and i do love the scheme of white black and gold, but innovative nontheless!
And yes, if you're going for a Slash type sound then definitely SD Alnico II's Are you thinking of painting a dragon along the fretboard just for lolz ;D?

Haha yeah, I just got the idea from the PRS Dragon special editions. Damn they're nice. And I live in England so I should know...but I've never had to buy any before :S lol I guess you could surf ebay..
I found these if they're helpful, they seem to go for aroun £70 =/ http://www.guitar.co.uk/humbucking/2202-aph1_alnico_ii_pro_neck_humbucking_pickup

I believe those places also do the bridge humbuckers for the same price.

Is that design on the bottom left corner from Muse's Origin of Symmetry?

Anyways, great job. Joe Satriani-esque, IMO.

What did you use to paint it? If you used paint, the how did you get that detail. If you used pens, then that's awesome
