    That’s a very cool idea :rolleyes:. But I’ve decided to contain my desire to tinker for a while with a view to learn how to play new stuff.

    must put down screw driver and pick up guitar pick.

    I've thought quite often about using Plasti-Dip for the arm bumper. As for the pickguard, had to modify a simpler black,white black Oreo 3 ply for a Epiphone LP Special I P90.

    I love that guitar! Nice work!
    Pre-war cars have always been one of the many fascinations for me and then the rat rod motif...absolutely sweet guitar!
