I just got this back from pin-striping Friday and was blown away
That's a very cool-looking tele! But...why is there a nail by the tone knob?
Also, we need more pictures...
It's not a nail, it's a bolt. He got the shortest he could find around...
Nice guitar! How have you made the stripes? Free hand?
Love the set screw on the tone knob, also the bridge plate cut like a Gibson headstock.
thanks everyone..RodeoTex true...that is a screw from lowes, this madness all started when i cut the bridge out with a jewelers saw like a gibson headstock and i took it to a very good pinstriper who mimicked the bridge in pinstripes in the lower bout...

Pinstriping is done free hand with special brushes with long flexible hair. You use "One Shot" sign painters enamel that covers wonderfully in one smooth coat. Pinstripers do that stuff much quicker than you would believe.
Years ago I got the brushes and the paint and after much practice could kind of make it work sometimes. It is like target shooting: relax, breathe steady, stare.
I really like the pinstriping but I'm not so sure about the cartoon figure. Still, not my guitar, so none of my business
I still have the "Keep on Trucking" poster on my wall.
Wish I knew a pinstriper or could be taught this technique.
Meet some hot rodders or motorcycle gas tank painters, ask them who in your area pinstripes. Bigger hot rod shows often have a guy adding decorations to cars. Go online and research Von Dutch, the very eccentric mechanical genius and the inventor of modern pinstriping. Buy the stuff and practice like crazy. Pretty soon every smooth surface in your garage will be covered in lines. The basic idea is that you make each line smoothly in one stroke.
Manny's fineline in Oklahoma City did this for me...a great guy to work with..I wouldn't at all be afraid to ship a body to him...True....Von Dutch Ed Roth
It’s a tone-nail, silly
Tone-nail...lol...wah-nail...it does have a .05 cap so it's all in that spot
Very cool. I'm loving that bridge!!
That came out great!!
The character is from Robert Crump`s underground comics. I like them because of super american art style, though i am a manga fan since 35 years back. Two very distinct worlds in comics!
I honestly know nothing on the subject as I never got beyond the Beano and Dandy as far as comics are concerned.
