good morning

after buying what i wanted ( guitar / cab/ head) there was some money left

i love tony iommi's old boy guitar and after knowing how much it would cost me to ask a luthier to make me one i thought about doing it my self it would be fun and i have alot of free time since im on holiday

there was 2 options

1-get a gibson SGj vintage sunburst the finish is close to tony's sg




or 2- a black epiphone g-400

but then i remembered that there was a jay turser sold on a local shop cheaper and no need to pay for shipping cost

it look like this


how will the heat gun work with the sgj paint ? or is it better to go with black finish




now from this pic 1-which floyd rose bridge will fit any of the 3 guitars ( it will be blocked any way )

2- how to make the pick up gard see-through


picks/ pick ups / knobs solved

sorry for my english

Stickied! This will be good to see.
I was going to do a monkey SG replica once, decided to get a Strat instead though. I'm not sure about the heat gun, but you could also look at the Gibson SG 60's tribute guitars?

That's not a Floyd Rose.
Notice that the Jay Turser is not a 24-fret guitar.
Tony doesn't have standard-size humbuckers on his guitar.
Piece of cake to cut a pickguard out of a small sheet of clear acrylic.

You might want to be careful about using a hair dryer too much. Anything hot enough to work on the finish is hot enough to unseat the glue on the neck.

After seeing youtube videos the heat gun will make the paint a thick

What I want is the body to look like its burned not to get to the actual wood of the body
