Some of you may remember what I did to my 70's Strat, I basically went nuts and painted all these designs on it. I realized that it looked pretty ridiculous, so yesterday I decided to sandpaper them off. Up close it looks pretty relic-y now. It's much better than the designs I had on there, that's for sure. Here's what it looks like now:

*Taylor 214ce Acoustic
*Fender Highway One Honey Blonde Strat (Fralin Pickups)
*Epiphone Zephyr Regent (Gibson '57 Humbucker)
*Vox 847 Wah
*Fulltone Fulldrive 2 MOSFET
*Fender Blues Deluxe Amp

I love that guitar. I'm really considering getting one just like it, same specs. It's just beautiful! By the way, do you have any pictures of how the guitar was with all the graphics on it?

Edit: Just looked at the thread, it looks much nicer now, but I like what you were getting at with the designs.
