thanks i will. neck has been radiused and fret inlays are on there way in. wings will be glued on soon and i should have it back ready to paint in about a week or two.

let me tell u that this was a pain in the ass to find parts for.... alot of the parts are brass... i couldnt find any brass tremolos for this. Gold plating is close enuff, and the worst of all is that this has the ultra rare "crown head" tuners gotoh made back in the day that charvel used at the time. i found a set on ebay for 300 :shock: bucks!! so i found a set that had the same style knobs on a cheapie set i found for 10 bucks.Im guna cut just the knobs off and machine them so i can screw them onto a set of gotoh style im using for a the base. What a pain in the ass to keep it original looking and to not have to spend crazy money on it.

Ohh I'm not building it.. I taught a guitar builder how to paint so he built me a guitar.. It's a win win cuz he still needs me to do graphics and airbrushing on them.. I don't have to worry about the prep and spraying.. And I got a sweet guitar out of it

Your guitar looks sweet btw

Yes.. I just spent close to 1k on original parts.... Crown head tuners.. Brass term. Brass pick up rings custom made..brass knobs, switch and imput jack. And Seymour Duncan sh2 and sh4 with gold poles.... Hold up was pick up rings and pick ups since I'm planning on artwork partially on the ring and pickup.. The Concorde shape is funky to do artwork on. Jay banbury gave me permission to airbrush some of his famous rhoads shots. Thanks for the intrest. Should finally get to crank up some artwork soon.
