Re: Question Guitar

Oh my holy GOD! that thing ROCKS! I must know how you transfered the images on there! I made a guitar in HS, but it's an ugly mutant that sounds awful so I do really do more than keep it in the closet:

The one lying on the case, clearly. But I'm seriously about to buy something cheap and Vic it up if you will share- epoxy? Gesso? The headstock even gah! I love it.

Re: Question Guitar

What kinda guitar was that originally, Eric?

There was this Ibanez Talman I was looking at to give the same kinda treatment, but as I don't actively play guitar in a band anymore (having moved to drums as a matter of pragmatism) I passed on it. Still, I'd like to do this sometime.

Re: Question Guitar

Um...let's see. I was 14.

I bought a $5 pink Global Les Paul copy at an auction.

I sanded it down, spray-painted it black (with masking tape covering up the frets, having stripped the hardware).

I bought a new stop tailpiece and pots and etc.

I bought some $0.10 Q comics, and cut them up (NOOOOOO!)

My Mom helped me arrange them on the guitar, and I made a mixture of white glue and water and painted it on with a paintbrush.

Then, once that was dry, I put about 12 coats of clear spray-paint over it. It's not the greatest. It still doesn't work well, because the intonation is wrong and it needs a refretting. I don't play it often, really at all, and I'm sure a pick would scratch it up. Also, the pages have started to yellow.

But I still like it!

Hope this helps though!

EDIT:

Here's 15-year-old me rocking out on it:
