I made a forum post way back while I was working on this and then proceeded to fall off the face of the earth for like, 2 years. I used acrylic paint on a wood body. Coated in several coats of polycrylic finish for protection.

The body itself came from a Saga guitar kit. All the internals, as well as the transparent pickguard and pick-up covers were purchased from other suppliers and assembled by American Music in Seattle. I'll try and get the specs from the guy who owns it. Thing plays like a gold knife spreading nutella on french toast.

Wow! I dont even OWN a guitar, and I would buy this. Excellent color choices, the complementary colors are spot on.


LordWozz responds:

I'm glad you noticed the color coordination!

Determining the palette was one of the most difficult parts of this project. This amount of painting requires a lot of coherency. I limited myself to only using colors mixed from red, yellow and blue. Mixing everything from scratch helped keep the shades and hues along the same "spectrum" so to speak.

I used Pthalo blue for a lot of the shading too. It's slightly transparent and also worked as a sort of visual "glue" to pull all the characters together.
