    I never thought I'd say this, but I may be glad that there's no Experience this year, because right now I feel unworthy to share the HGI lobby with you.

    That's frigging awesome. Do you take commissions?

    Thanks very much for the kind words Alan (and everyone else who commented).

    If only I had the time. Here's a final photo of all the elements (including the Alan mod) together. As you can see, they all contribute to the finished look without permanent modifications.

    I started with ebony tuner buttons. I mounted them to some old SE tuners and a large paint stick. Then I sanded them and cut some masking tape to a width that I thought might work.

    The first coat of paint is white primer.

    Then I stripped off the tape to expose the black ebony. After that, I added more tape in different widths.

    Then I added several coats of a candy red.

    Attachment 1715

    After it dried (for over a month) I sanded them with 800 grit and added 5 coats of clear.

    Can you dig it?

    Those buttons are so freaking cool!!! Outstanding.
