    I met up with a guy from Facebook on my lunch break today. Came back to work with two new projects in the trunk. One is a no name ESP style LP body and neck. The other is a Translucent red Strat body. Also got a brand new, still in the package, MIM tremolo for the Strat. All for just $80!

    that ESP is calling out for P90s! I should go try one, what's the neck like?

    It’s not a real ESP. Just that style. I think it’s one of the Guitar Fetish buyout guitars. And to be honest, I didn’t even pay that much attention to the neck profile. I had just a short amount of time on my lunch break and I was just making sure nothing was cracked or broken. Not sure what I’m going to do for pickups on that one.

    First mock up. I’m thinking this might need rosewood and black pickguard.

  14. Those translucent red bodies look insane with gold hardware … think Pro-Tone. Awesome buy. Keep us posted.
    Cheers, Barrie.

    Wow, that looks even nicer than it did "naked". I think it'd look great w that maple board and black pickup covers and knobs.

    I hadn’t thought about gold. That might be really cool.

    The other one has a flake in the finish that I didn’t see earlier. I guess it’s supposed to be a gold top? Kind of like sparkly mustard yellow! This one has lots of finish flaws but seems well built. Should be a nice player. And I did check the neck profile. Pretty close to a slim 60’s Gibson I think. Feels nice.

    @dbrian66 here is some inspiration for you. Thought of this as soon as I saw that body. This is G&L's S500 in Irish Stout (colour not the drink) :B
