    So forgive the HEAVY pic spam, but im SOOOOO unbelievably stoked to get this thing, @Randy did an amazing job taking an idea ive had kicking around almost a decade and bringing it to life. These are the last shots before it ships and then paint and reassembly. This is incredable DSC_3729.JPG DSC_3732.JPG DSC_3734.JPG DSC_3736.JPG DSC_3727.JPG

    So @Randy shipped YESTERDAY and i received today....and i am FAR BEYOND pleased(see what i did there lol) this thing FEELS like home already with no hardware or paint or string....THE only way it could get better is if it was neck thru. I havent been able to put it down since i unboxed it. It is HUGE, i forgot how big these things are lol. Cant say enough good thins about Randy and how the communications and over all experience was, he literally took a 10+year old photo shop idea and made it come to life. Thanks a million man 20191213_212041.jpg 20191213_211929.jpg

    Dude, that thing is fuckin fantastic. And I don’t know what you’re thinking as far as the pickup color scheme, but I bet cream and black zebra on neck and bridge would look great.

    My buddy thats painting it hit me up a couple days ago, and was like " so change of plans flat gray is out. Im gonna primer its gray, hit it with chrome and then gloss black and then an overspray of nickle." So im pretty intrigued. Just waiting for this awful weather to break
