    I think I just threw up a little in my mouth, not because of the guitar, but because the out of focus pic, made me ill. JK

    This guitar is my latest one that I just finished for a friend of mine. He is on this forum as "5150Frankenstrat". I did put a thin clear coat on the the guitar, but I really wanted it to retain some of that rough look with the tape edges that the original Frankenstrat had, so I only put on a slight protective clear coat that would protect the tape edges from being scraped off.

    It does play really well too.... I wish it had a Wolfgang or EBMM EVH pickup in the bridge position , but other than that, it is great!

    Unfortunately... I used Testor's Enamel and Testor's Model Master Enamel. I had used Krylon before, and although it is amazing to work with, and it looks great, it stays fairly soft and a little sticky in thick coats for a long time.

    So I figured Testors would be a good thing to try... wrong. The colors are wonderful, but literally every other paint can is defective and either explodes out the top, or bubbles over their faulty nozzle design. Even the cans that did work did not go on smoothly at all, and it had to be sanded a lot at EVERY step.
