To post pics from your cell phone, send them in a text to your email, then upload to photobucket. Pretty simple really.

Can't wait to see it

Allright.......I gotta admit that it didn't get finished till today. Heading out in an hour to pick it up. I'm "supposed" to get a ton of pictures of it when pick it up. I'll talk to you guys later

I'm gonna restart the thread too so that people don't have to go through 15 posts just to see it. I'll call it "My new custom guitar: Cerastes" So search for Cerastes later to find it

This sounds cool TS, but you don't have to restart the thread, you could always just use the edit button to edit your first post, and do whatever you like there

Maybe the price tag is clouding your judgment ?
yeah probably. Or the circuits.

well i got yesterday. Quite happy with it too. It's not done all the way cosmetically, still need the snake inlay under the bridge, the snake head truss rod cover and the back plate for the electronics. It also needs the 9/18v push button to be functional, right now it's just a nifty little killswitch. I'm heading out to buy a camera/camcorder. So now ALL will finally see my guitar an rig :-)

Are you talking about those weird sphincter-spasms where it feels like there's a ghost dick in your ass for a little while and then it just disappears?

reported for spam.

If you have something new to share with us, cool, were all for it. But pointlessly bumping is against the rules, and is spam.
