If you ever end up in San Francisco, drop me a line (though I live in a studio apartment, so there really isn't a guitar factory to tour!)

I just paint on the roof when it isn't too windy. Not ideal, but it works okay.

It's finally summer here in San Francisco, so I had a chance to take refinish-finished pictures on the roof / spray booth (some paint drips on the roof show up in one of the photos!)
It turned out okay, though I guess a mint guard looks a little odd with a big headstock

Also, I picked up a body that was once Inca Silver a long long time ago - ...and on the THIRD try, I finally got it to be pretty close to the original color. There is still original silver in the cavities and between the pickups. This one was assembled piece-by-piece, so it took a while to get together!

They need some emg's :P

Great looking guitars, the only thing upsetting is that the other two bodies aren't finished and up there.
