And i love it

Paint job is cool, but not on a LP, sorry but it just don't fit, you did a pretty good job anyway

The flames may of looked better going the other way, but either way nice job. Now you need to drill some speed holes make it go faster "random redneck joke about cars with flames making them look faster, and speed holes in the hood"

PLEASE, dont use the pickups and stuff that came with it!

nice.
yup, change out the tuners and pups (and maybe electronics) and it'll be fine.

How did he paint it? Airbrushing?
If you think things can't get worse it's probably only because you lack sufficient imagination.

well right now im kinda swamped, almost done tho
have a problem with the neck: when i screwed them in it created extra holes( actually it was my father that did it :P) well, i could just fill that in with wood filler or something, right......i hope so. so yeah

its not airbrushed, he used car paints
im probably going to change out the pickups and stuff later on, but not right now
and no im not painting the headstock
thx for the comments


Hmmm...
Do you know what brands? Or could you somehow obtain detailed instructions? Because I was actually planning on buying the exact same guitar kit and letting my girlfriend custom paint it but I figured acrylics wouldn't really work.

stock electronics that saga ships out are barely acceptable. some would say, their not acceptable. But for what it's worth - the tuners I got with my strat kit are 18:1 and hold tune pretty decently considering. But this may not be the case of all the tuners sent out.

well he works in an auto body shop, with high end equipment so i wouldn't expect you to be able to get the stuff he used. You can always use spray paint,but im no expert on this

The stuff itself isn't really that expensive. It's the environment that is.

What do you mean by that? The spray equipment is most likely very expensive.

i think he means that having the area and space to do the work is what's expensive. but the spray equipment is what i was talking about

and i still need help with mah neck, it moves up and down

Professional spray gun: $200
A good air compressor: $600-800
Good paint such as Evercoat: About $50 a gallon, depending on what type of coat.

Paint booth: I've seen as little as 5 grand for a small, almost portable one. A good sized professional booth, for a whole car, would be anywhere from 20-40k, if not more. Then add things like fans and temperature controllers.
