I brought my Strat to a custom painter who put some Old Skool style hot rod pinstripes on it for me! I am very happy with how it came out. There are white highlights that are tough to see in the picture, but look really great in person. If you aren't familiar with this style, pinstriping is a very traditional American Hot Rod trick that was made huge in the 50's by guys like Von Dutch. In addition to guitars, muscle cars and hot rods are my main hobbies. So, I thought I would combine the two with some pinstripes on my guitar!

Looks cool Ben, I can barely see the white so I bet it looks even better in person.

Nice Ben!!!! Shame we can't quite see the detailing as I bet it looks stunning!!


PS. It's always nice to hear someone mention 'Von Dutch' in the correct context instead of some young'un who thinks he makes clothes!!!
