    My first attempt at refinishing a guitar:

    Not perfect. Definitely a few things I'd do better next time around.

    And before anyone asks or complains:
    1) I don't want to redo the headstock just because I don't want to molest a 1527M neck
    2) I have the cavity covers, but I'm still debating what to do with them.

    If I, for some strange reason, needed a 7-Stringer with a locking trem, that would be the one! Nice work!

    Congrats!
    That's a beauty for sure!

    LSL has a black and gold paisley pattern that would look great on a super strat like that

    I give you a 10 for creativity and a 9.8 on the execution.
    Beautiful.

    Killer! I dig that a lot. Where did you get the fabric for that?

    Thanks guys!

    I found a good JPEG of the design on-line and used Zazzle.com to print it onto some fabric. Wish I had used a lighter background. It got darker once it was glued to the guitar. Oh well.
