OK, this might not be for everyone, but here she is.



Neck and middle pickups are OC Duff Fillmore and the bridge pickup is an OC Duff Plankster Tele pickup. The Hipshot trem is excellent! Kudos to my talented wife for painting the body.

That looks great. wouldn't mind seeing close ups of the paint work.

I agree, the Hipshot is an outstanding trem, so smooth.

When I saw the thread title, I thought uh oh... but when I saw the pic, I thought "COOL!". :aok

That looks great. What was the inspiration behind it? As you probably know, most Australian Aboriginal paintings represent sacred places or totems to a particular tribe or area. The dot patterns and style usually has a meaning or interpretation behind it.

Then again, a lot of the recent ones are just paintings which are aesthetically pleasing, so it's all good whichever way you look at it...

That design is a helluva lot of fun! Congrats! I can feel the hot aussie sun from here :)

Warrants a new pickguard IMO... a few unfinished ideas pop to mind...

Enjoy your new axe!

Wow! Cool. I like guitars with color, and I often feel the need to bust out of traditional finishes from time to time. These do it. I especially like the green guard version. Way to promote creativity, people!

Thanks to all, and especially for this. I've been trying to come up with ideas for pickguard and knobs. The white pearloid was intended as a temporary item.
