So I've had a crappy black epiphone HSS strat copy sitting around for a while in pieces because its a POS and basically unusable. But I decided to swap out the pick ups and repaint it and switch some hardware, and basically make it look completely rediculously awesome

How do you guys think this would look?

If you can get that shade of green that would be awesome. I'd paint the knobs and pickup covers green too though.

exactly what i was going to say, how about white volume knob, then the first tone knob black, then the second tone know white. i think that would look better, or all green knobs.either of them would look awesome.

EDIT: what site did you use to make the image of this guitar?

That looks horrible. Give it a Sky blue with dark blue volume/tone knbos, and a white pearl pickguard.

that's awesome, very like vai's green meanie. assuming you're going for an 80's superstrat look, you've done well.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Multi coloured only ever seems to work when Steve Vai is playing it. Don't ask why...

I really like it! I like the knobs, too! I particularly like THAT color green and THOSE colors for the knobs. I wish I had one.
