If it weren't for that really ugly headstock shape, which obviously isn't your fault, that would actually look really freakin' cool.

now smash the pickguard, rip out the middle and bridge Pups, stick a humbucker in and slap a floyd on and have yourself a free frankenstrat.

Did you just paint over the previous finish?

Being that I assume the First Act would come with a THICK polyurethane finish, in order to have this paint stick to the guitar he sanded it down. Probably to bare wood, but at least through the finish the company put on.

Good point, now I'm tempted to get a squier and do the same!

Good call. I'm in the process of completely rebuilding my Squier Bullet. When I'm finally done with it, it'll perform and look as good as any professional-grade guitar, even though it'll retain the Squier body and neck.

Squier bullets have basswood bodies nowadays don't they? It's a good call by squier to use basswood over agathis, considering a lot of japanese fenders use the wood. I think I even saw a squier the other day that had a two point trem system...

Anyways, the fact that it's a squier body should be no big deal, and the neck is replaceable.

What type of paint did you use? Cause I'm thinking of spraying a logo of sorts onto my guitar and I can't be bothered to sand it down.
