first one I though of is sorta a strat tribute guitar.

I'm gonna put pics of people who are famous for playing a strat....

I'm working on getting pics atm, not sure if I could paint it myself though.

so far the list:

Hendrix
SRV
Clapton
Eric Johnson


That's off the top of my head...

What I need is a list of some more to put on.


Quick question, would it look alright if they were real nice printouts, put on the wood and cleared over??

This is still in preliminary stages though.

Gotta go, be back tonight...
Maybe I'll have more ideas

Eddie Van Halen (the Frankenstrat had a Fender body, and Fender are making a copy of it now)

I think you've got enough to cover the front of the body, as most of it is covered by a pickguard. You can simply glue the pictures on and cover them in clear coats. It's been done before many times. However, be careful with the laquer and don't put too much on at once, or the paper will soak it up.

No, the Frankenstrat had a Charvel body.


It had a Charvel neck, definetely, but I don't think the body was a Charvel. Are you refering to the white or the red one? They had different parts.

Since you're painting the faces (based on gathering their pics), do a posterized (black and white or any color and white) version.

It'll be less difficult, probably more appropriate, and pretty much just as impressive, compared to actual flesh tones. It'll still be very impressive if you can pull it off.
