    So, its finished...

    I opted to throw in a Duncan 59 that I had laying around instead of the "detonator"

    Only thing I ordered was the tuning machines and strap...

    I even put in a killswitch by the bridge where the old volume was.

    Don't laugh at my dilapidated old recliner... (wife has wanted me to toss it for years) so I keep it to spite her.

    What do you think?

    Well done, looks like you did a great job. I like the starfield / nebulua effect, and I do like "out-there" kind of guitars. I'm not sure I would be man enough to play it though!

    That guitar definitely deserves stage time, and you did a great relic job on the recliner!
