Someone asked me how I did the paint. Well, here are the paint & body mods to my Halloween guitar...in reverse. If you zoom in on the 1st pic, you can see little glitter flakes in the black spikes & the bats have red eyes. Bat decals were added after the black paint stage & removed before clear coated. The last pic shows the straight pickup cavity I hand chiseled to the new angle. The cavity has round edges.
I bought a guitar kit to complete my Halloween costume. The mahogany body came with a straight angled pickup cavity, but I made it angled using chisels, wood strips & filler. No router! I painted it black, white, then red to reveal red fangs & embossed black bats. Yes, I know it's missing the usual famous red/white/black stripes, because that design is a registered trademark owned by some famous rock star. I wonder who that could be? Rhythms with Eddie Van Halen! Haha 😉
