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.

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.
