    oscillat0r, I didn't do it myself, I hired this guy to pimp it. He didn't scrape off the original body color but just layered them with acrylic paints. And those are also paint colors on the wings not stained or sanded wood. He told me that he it'd been coated with a layer of polyurethane. I dig the roughness of the finishing, looks exactly like a real oil painting on canvas.

    This is a no ordinary PIMP MY AXE, it's the artist's interpretation of my life. I told him a lil' bit about myself and he successfully reduced it in this great art form. Maybe you guys too can have some rough idea on what/how my life is. He named this one as "Freedom and Duality" and this is what he described:

    *double imagery
    *fishes and wings
    *the highway
    *strive
    Move forward
    *fish in the tank analogy/ back fins as wings when split.

    ikan - you need to replace the eyelets where the string comes through the body or you'll damage your new finish which looks great.
