Got some more pics one of the headstock which I have sanded down.
And handpainted A Gibson Logo on and tried to give it an aged effect the same as the original 78 just waiting for the Nut and the locking tuners

Also the part assembled body just waiting on the Pup And guard

Let me know what you think!!!

Simply an awesome work mate, I think the final work will be great! I'll wait for the final picture, or maybe a close-up video! In the meantime you need an EVH 5150 III... biggrin.gif
