    That turned out pretty nice for a test coat. I bet it’ll look great with a nice build up.

    That turned out nice too. Getting a nice little spray setup is awesome though.

    All 3 look great. I prefer #1, but maybe.... you need 3 boogies and do each of the three options :O

    That "doommaster" is absolutely awesome! Is that a baritone?

    Explorer build just needs electronics wired up and final setup, then it's done.

    Also thinking about doing a modernized/metal friendly take on the cabronita next. Might do shou sugi ban on the body/headstock.
