This'll look great all super glossy. Great build man, it's very different to anything we usually see on here.

Headstock color pretty much done. Decal once it cures.

Also got grey primer going. I will sand it some more and apply more primer tomorrow.

The body is drying now. I will give the Duplicolor a week to cure before I spray Deft clear on it. Neck same deal.

Yeah after you make the mistake of messing with soft paint once you'll never do it again.

I predict.... AWESOMENESS!

Got it from Cooterfinger. It was a paddle one that he shaped. Not sure how much he paid for it.

Comments were made, but I think this looks pretty classy. LOL (I also like giving the builder some credit. Very Happy)

Last coat of clear on the back of the neck. Just a couple more on the headstock and I can let it cure and get working on spraying clear on the body.
