    Shaped.


    Painted/Poly (no pic of poly, I was tipsy)


    Lame Gotoh locking tuning pegs (somebody alert SWARP) and strings.




    Bangin' $125 guitar.





    The paint job is wonky at best. I used one of those $.99 cans of flat black from Ho-depo and it didn't really blend all that well (surprise!) but the guitar did it's job of distracting me enough to let the glitter one dry a bit more. I won't say this one is done yet.... but it is for now.

    Your paint job is good enough to look excellent for photos you post on the internet, and that's all that matters!

    Nice work. It's almost hard to keep track of them all.

    Very nice repair. Out of curiosity, what brand/type epoxy did you use?

    Kwik Wood brand epoxy, I'm normally really shy about using stuff with the letter "k" in it when they don't have to.. but it works alright.

    I don't know. Where's the sparkle? Where's the Veuve Cliquot? Where's the Pierre Cardin?

    Great work, Sergio!
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    I know right? At least I can count on Eric to give it to me straight.

    One of the problems is that there's nothing really wrong with this guitar... it's just kinda boring looking. The other problem is; There's nothing really wrong with this guitar! It's really nice! The other ones were totally jacked in one way or the other, so it was easy to just be like; "I'ma sparkle pink that bi*ch!" or "Put some bling on it!". I really do have a respect/fetish for PRS stuff that makes it hard to just destroy even the cheapest of them.

    The Veuve, the sparkle, and the Pierre are a whole nuther problem, I gotta get my spending back in control 'cause there's like, a huge fuggin party in Maryland in a month, and I've been courtin' a genuine adult lady... Why is every girl a friggin "foodie" nowadays? Clubs and bars I can handle, perhaps I know the bartender or someone at the door... You know why Ethiopians are still starving? Cause dinner for two is like $85! (get the honey wine though, it tastes great after the first few glasses) Sushi? Duuuude! I spent $50 on my dismal meal of tempura and seaweed wrapped rice-n-guac! (have the saki though, it helps with the sticker shock). Nepali food?! screw it... Remember when girls just ordered salad and a ton of drinks? I miss those days.... Oh, and it's making me fatter!

    As for the guitar? Yeeeeaaahhh...... prolly not gonna stay this way for long.
