I had this posted in the Custom Shop area, but since it's not an LP, I thought I should create a thread over here.

Just finished this baby up and I' proud of the result. Looks and plays excellent!

If I understand correctly you did the aging? Looks convincing :). Or did you build the guitar?
Did you snap the headstock and glue it back on? :)

I refinished the guitar in white and then did all the aging (and drawing). I actually thought about trying to break the headstock, that could have been disastrous and runined the integrity of the guitar.

The guitar is a 1976 Electra Flying V, the same one James Hetfield played in Metallica's early days.

I remember the early days with Metallica. That was the workhorse.
Hetfield used that almost exclusively.
Looks pretty close.

That’s pretty fucking cool man! That takes some good commitment getting all the marks as accurate looking as possible!
