That looks awesome!

I love the retta body style. They really make you learn how to work the volume knob for versatility!

Be real careful with that nitro,
cover your guitar stands, Ben.
Nitro doesn't like nylon or leather
for the most part.

Fasttrack, What all did you use on it from Reranch? I'm going to finish my strat with the reranch stuff, but I think i'm going to end up spending between $60-$80 to get it all. Since i'm going with Daphne Blue, i'll have to get some white undercoat.

This axe will be worthy of hanging one the wall like some of the others:thumbs:

If it will just wear off, that's cool, Nitro is the "relic paint!":icon_lol:

It sure is! Gives it character.
When it comes in contact with leather, nylon or other things that it doesn't like, it kind of bubbles up.

No I wont! this one is one for Me!

I already have the neck, and it feels good, and I know that pickups are easy swaps (if it comes to that)

anyways, that Condor just doesnt get played, so why have it?

man, never heard of that. can you still get off with tape around the end of yer wanker bar ??? :eusa_thin











Tip- most of the digs that occurr over the life of an axe comes from wrapping 1/4" cords up while the axe is sitting out and not minding the lose-end cable tip whipping around like a reaper :icon_wink

Thats going to look great Ben, what era neck is going on there?? you know I'm doing the 1000 that Bob sent over properly at the minute, just waiting on some bits from the US, and it'll be back rocking, had to put the one OFR I have back on the Deluxe.

Bob its going to be seriously hot this time, the bridge pup is weighing in at 16.5k ;) and with that D'Ma pup you sent over reading at 12.8k in the neck it should be a nice balance.

I was originally gonna go with a nice Seafoam green, but I figured I best be a bit conservative, with the crayola police around.
