    Default Tribute Guitar

    O.K guys ,
    I've had an idea for a while that I'd like to make a tribute guitar collage style .But I could never find a good enough clear coat to make it work ! Well , long story short , a buddy of mine turned me on to KraftKote , a thick , clear , 1/8 inch self leveling top coating . So I thought I'd give it a shot .

    The guitar is an old 80's Arbor guitar , with a cheap floyd , Washburn humbucker and a coil tap switch . It doesn't really sound that good anymore , but it was meant to be more of a display piece anyway !
    I guess it came out ok..................................

    The wood was too thick to accomodate my switch , volume . So instead of re-routing the two small holes , I just cut out a small section , mounted the switches to the cover , and mounted the cover to the guitar ! That's it , just making my life easier !

    That's what I was going to say. I bet he'd get a kick out of that.
    Either that or he'd try to sue you.

    if ed tried to sue lodeji for THAT, i'd consider telling him to fuck off,, as much as its blasphemy..
    sometimes too far is too far..

    so who has his email??

    I don't think I've got much to worry about , as long as I don't try to sell it on Ebay ! LOL


    Not to mention , I think my tattoo would prove to him that I'm really a fan , and not just out to make money off of his likeness !

    It did come out really nice. You did a great job...and I'm not at all biased.

    I think the fact that the guitar was red---really sets off the pics. LOOKS HOT!

    AND---at least if Ed sued you---you'd have to MEET HIM in court. Might be worth the lawsuit.
