Well I got sick of my affinity strat and decided to refinish/modify it since i have a Les Paul now
I started this in December and didn't take inbetween pics, but anyways...
Initial Sanding:

Finished Pics
Body Shot 1


Body Shot 2 (Cartouche says Jafar in Hieroglyphics)


Control shot (Killswitch, Master Vol, Master Tone, 5-way switch)


Headstock (Marines sticker and Carpenters Union "Safety" sticker)


Backplate


Notes:
This is my "signature" guitar. Jafar is my nickname cuz my first name is Jeff and my last name (too long and hard to pronounce) starts w/ R, so on role call they just say Jeff R (say it out loud and you'll get it

Pickups are a random duncan designed pickup (don't kno what kind), and the stock single coils. The PG is not stock. I like the stock single coils because they make it sound acoustic better than other single coils i've played. Very versatile guitar

I'm modding mine too, same color! *high fives*
Anyways, what're you planning on doing? I'm replacing everything. including the neck (mighty mite FTW), I won't have enough for a new bridge though, and I wanted a wilkinson.
EDIT: I like it finished.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

btw all "striping" is electrical tape and the Cartouche is all vinyl

Hey, did you strip that all the way down to wood?

to the sealer, in some parts it went to the wood, which kinda showed in the finish, but i did a crap job sanding the sides and its a matte finish so i didn't care
