V8 Walnut replacement body, really like the sound of that!
I hear you and agree walnut body would be nice.. but not for this round... but maybe for a later project... its still an option. (In-fact I already have a fairly good idea what I would do with a blank piece of wood. So watch this space.)
But I was referring to the Plywood body.. working with the actual plywood and making it a feature...its One of the options ..
a Few of My options I'm considering..
Doing a stain, maybe even a burst of some sort, either highlighting the edge grain or blacking it out.
Doing a spray paint, like pearl white and overlaying pop-art graphics.
Doing something like Steampunky..( was my original Idea) like adding in a wiring diagram on the pick-guard cover and adding gears. etc.
Doing A anime/comic graphic guitar.
Doing a Van Halen frankenstrate tribute ( Prefer to do something originally my own)
doing a fabric covered guitar or doing a holoflash guitar
or a combination of one or more...Ideas..My biggest issue at them moment is not a lack of ideas.. but of too many Ideas. and hoping that once the paint is all off, I'll have a better idea of where to go.
