Wow!
Until now I didn't care much about Ocean Turquoise - but it really goes well with a black pickguard!

Also the Double Bound model looks great! Congrats! What a nice collection!
The others too! ;)

Thanks, I painted that one myself. It's far from professional, but it looks good from a distance ;-) I didn't polish the finish. The flat look goes well with the black pickguard

So it was body blank before or did you refinish/paint over it?
I'm missing the appropriate working space, tools (and obviously knowledge and experience) to do that myself - but it has been always tempting to me! Btw I even prefore flat/matte finishes - could this be done (and possibly look good) with something like Firemist Silver or Sage Green?

I don't know what the original color of the body was, but it was sanded back to the wood by a previous owner and stained, it looked pretty bad. I just lightly sanded it and gave it a few layers of OTM with a spraycan. The neck is from a Squier jazzmaster, so the headstock was obviously finished. I just lightly sanded that as well until it didn't feel smooth anymore, so the paint would stick. The metallics have little metal particles in it, so I didn't really spray it directly on the body, but from a little distance so the paint 'falls' on the body. After that a few layers of nitro clear. I didn't do any sanding in between layers or afterwards, so it was pretty straight forward.

I wanted this thing to look like something Sonic Youth would play, without copying a specific guitar. Like I said, it's far from professional. If you look close you can see (and feel) that and the sticker is hiding the worst spot, but I'm pretty happy with the result.

Okay, cool! Thank you! Doesn't sound too difficult.
My bandmate has just oversprayed a CAR finish on a Squier Jagmaster - which now "bleeds" through the layers of matte black. Looks pretty rad!
But still, I would do it as it's supposed to work best and sand at least a little if not strip it all before refinishing it... I guess it depends on the guitar. sometimes the "returning of the origin" is a cool thing that you have to "earn" - like the black Judo (or was it Karate) belt that becomes white again if it is worn off...
