    Very cool. Nice color choice, I wouldn't have thought of that, but it works pretty well on an 80's lookin' parts superstrat.

    whilst I really like the finished outcome OP, where did the Hulk reference come from? haha. Seems more like those foam banana sweets colourwise.? Unless its just the pics. Im presuming the reference was due to its colour?. I might be totally missing the point haha inwhich case I apologise.

    sick build either way man

    Thanks...yes its the pics lol...its much more green in person. These do make it look yellow...I will admit that the clear lessened the green a bit and its not really a match of the big guys actual color.

    Wasn't my intention!! It was a last minute choice on the color..i was going to go with a cream or white...and I dunno...I saw this color and said that would look different and cool...I almost backed out and my buddy said go for the green....im so glad I did...I love it!
