I got this in trade. Always wanted to try one out. I love the upside down lefty look. The body has some stuff that I wanted to try to fix. I heard Dots wanted to flip it lefty so there were some holes drilled for a plate and strap button. There is/was also a large chip of paint in the contour area. I did some zpoxy filling and sanding. Doesn't look pretty, but it is getting back to smooth so I can do a fresh layer of black to get it looking more pristine. Smile

Hard to see but there used to be four small drilled holes here.

Large chip I filled/sanded around.

Once I get paid again, I will pick up some 600 grit sandpaper to sand it for spraying and some black and clear paint. Should look great when I am done. Smile

Yeah, it was yours. I didn't end up getting along with the balance of the guitar. I know it's in good hands now.

I got her flipped back right handed and wired up before I sent it to HNB.

Long time no post on this. I honestly forgot that I still had this to work on a couple times but now I am back on it. I am going to paint the body matte black and it will have a glossier black guard. There are just a couple areas I wanted to put a little more filler in before I do final sanding to paint. Smile

Got some black on as a primer so I can check for areas needing smoothing still.

Pickguard is basically done. It looks like the same wear it had as a white guard, but black. Smile

Also just finished the third round of black on the body. (Second round with the flat black.)

It is looking like a tank. I am pretty happy with it. I am using paint made for painting wood and metal grills. This one will have TONZ and FLAME resistant. LOL
