I've been to one World's Fair, a picnic, and a rodeo, and that's the stupidest thing i ever heard come out a pair of headphones.

I think this neck is going to work fine with the gunmetal grey. Color is done. After a week or two I will start applying clear over it. :D

Clear is almost done. Should be ready to cure by the weekend. Curing takes a bit so it has a ways to go. :)

I've got a DG10. They're a lot of fun, and with the help of a few stompboxes you can get some decent sounds!

That is really cool. I remember those and/or things like it back in the '80s. I think the charred wood effect on the neck with the gunmetal gray body is going to be a nice contrast.

You'll definitely have to post more pics and for the final product, let us know how it plays, sounds, etc.
