    How do you do your neck joint? Bolt on or dove tail? That shape is growing on me!

    If ya ever do another one with the weaved sides, it would look pretty sweet to dye the wood strips different colors!

    Bought some paint at Lowe’s cream color sprayed it on didn’t do much for me, sanded it off and bought some car paint with metallic special order, they put it in a spray can, also used a primer with epoxy first , now just waiting til Sunday to do black on the sides and part of the neck.

    I call this the super ghost, Well I finished this one today Did some changes since I started but I like it a lot, p90 Gibson pu and tvjones brian setzer pu, added a bar above the bigsby to keep th the strings down before the bridge, also added a small plate on the headstock to keep the strings in place so they don’t move off the nut
