exactly. i was thinking just the outline. not like colored in or anything. but than i dont know what color the body should be.
#5
i found this pic and i really like. it. where do u think it should go? i was thinking between the pickups and than having "Iron Maiden" in awesome font curving around the bottom with the shape of the body. but i dont know what else i should put on there. i could also get the names of the band members engraved on the pickup covers.

It would help if you gave us a picture of the body shape.

The Eddie sort of flag thing from A Matter of Life and Death would look sweet.

well I know nothing about material finishes but you may be able to print out the eddie design and put that on your guitar.......but then again i know nothing about doing it

not really. If you know any good vinyling places around. You could get your iamge printed onto a vinyl sticker. Place it on the guitar and clear over it. This is the process many companies like schecter (wwII series models) use to put intricate designs on the guitars without painting them all by hand

your not beveling the lower horn? that would make sense for easier fret access I would think.

So the strap pin would go to the back where the neck and body meets, like on the Gibson SG?

A head shot looks the "least" difficult to paint ...



or



Even then, the blending will be pretty challenging. Masking will only take you so far, the general shapes ,etc. Then you'd have to go either freehand or airgun it for the details and blending. I'd do it for the challenge except I'm not too crazy about demons, skulls, fangs, or that genre.

If you can pull it off, it's gonna be badass! Good Luck!

the aces high pic would look really badass between the pickups but i dont know if i could get anyone to paint that. my friends dad is a really good painter(on his old car he painted and awesome tiger head) but i dont know if he would be able to do it. so im prolly gonna have to look for osmeone to paint it on for me professionaly. i just dont know who and where.

I saw a thread just recently, a guy printed out a picture onto a giant label (essentially making a giant sticker) and applied it to his pickguard, then put a clear coat over it. It ended up coming out really well. That might be something that could work for this guitar.
