black and white frankenstrat

the tape didnt stay on all the way and white got on the stripes but no big deal were are going to touch it up with model paint and a brush

i used like 2 coats of primer and sanded it smooth and about 4 coats of black, striped it and then about 4 coats of white, it seems like there isnt that much paint on it did i do enough coats? i used spray paint from advance auto.

were going to touch it up and then clear coat it
hopefully it looks good when its done
it looks ok but it was my first ever guitar project

pr0nz will come when its finished

heres what it was before...




only one i have of it before

"if i were you I wouldn't fiddle with the feet etc. as that nullifies warranty but yeh, just get up in digitech's grill and demand they make you a custom whammy that is purple and gold and fires rockets when you bend +2 octaves"

i figured i'd keep this in the same thread i made

ok so i have this pup from a b.c. rich(humbucker) bronze series and i want to wire it straight to the volume pot to the input jack is there any diagrams out there for this?

i know how to wire things in cars from diagrams and stuff
but i got a little confused about this because its not going to the pickup selecter switch

I like that. It looks good, and I usually don't like the way one pickup guitars look. I need to try making a VH replica sometime. The ones they sell are way to expensive, and you get to have the fun of building it yourself.
