it's ugly as hell, and i absolutely love it.
f.y.i. in the videogame community BFG stands for "big ****ing gun".
or, if you read children's books, "big friendly giant".

It looks insane (in a good way). It also looks like an abstract Mickey Mouse. :D
Cool axe, well done. :)

It's got a bit of a steampunk vibe going on. One of kind for sure. Can't wait for the video. Perhaps with a performance or sound clip?
For some reason I picture it being played through a steampunk amp

so I decide this morning to make PU bezzels and a pick guard, I had plexi glass laying around and wanted to try something, It came out great and it took me 4 hours to do 2 bezzels and a pick guard, using my dremmel and jiggsaw and round drill sander, I frosted it with 120 grit sandpaper on the pick guard I did both sides and on the bezzels front only, 2 sides make it a darker frost
