    I really like 3. And kudos to you for doing this! I am considering getting a load of Jackson parts and giving it to someone to assemble, since I havn't done anything with a guitar in years. That and the custom quote for my Jackson is nearly 3,800 bucks if i get it as is from the custom shop. If I assemble it though, I'd probably end up making the thing look like some sort of bad 50's sci fi serial weapon or something, and not on purpose. :D

    But good luck to you on it! :) I look forward to seeing it how it comes along...

    All other people on this board is gay, gay I tell you!(except for tut who is simply metrosexual):

    NUMBER 2!!!!! This paint job rocks! Though it does remind me of an old BC Rich paint job! :puke: Ah I really don't know do it the origional Rhoads style or not at all. I personally would put flames on it or a costum job of the fine czarnian LOBO on it or... boobs? Yeah that is it boob-vex! That would be like theme thing then right?? :heh:

    ive had this paint job idea for a while now. . .its the original RR paintjob, that he put on his very first jackson. and i never use a neck pickup. . . and i want 24 frets. . .so i gotta take it out anyway. even my epiphone, my first guitar has only one bridge pickup in it, its the only thing im comfortable with. . .

    sorry guys, im not that artistic. I can do solid colors and small, uncomplicated designs. My GF did my yellow bevels, but im doing this one totally by myself.

    First of all, yes, put a neck pickup in there. I command you! Now, those paintjobs are alright. I voted for 2, but I still like the idea of a custom picture paintjob more. Hey Bob, if I get all the parts and pay you, would you build me a guitar? Just wondering.

    Oh and Goth fiend, your guitar looks awesome.

    yeah dood, i can build you one, let me see how this one turns out first, then you can take a look and see whether or not you trust me.

    as for a picture, i have no idea how to do that, all i really know how to do is paint simple colors and designs. :erk: ill get better with more projects i suppose.
