Thanks Pad! Gave it another coat of primer this afternoon before heading home. Tomorrow I'll maybe sand it back very lightly and hit it with another before moving on to the black soon I hope.

Hey Pad! Long overdue update here. Got first coats of black on today, looking cool no?

May shoot another tomorrow for good luck or move on to clear. Need a good clean up in the booth before shooting clear I think :wacko:

I am staying with the Pickups it came with (original bridge pickup and the old Seymour Duncan '59 in the neck)

Soooooo:

the body arrived from rexter 2 days ago and I've assembled her,
so it is cosmetically finished.
ill might change the pickup cover to pure chrome color and the electronic isn't finished,
but you'll see how far i got with it!
