Well, I've had this MIM body for a while now, so I decided to paint it as a tribute to one of my favorites. Nothing much more to say about it I guess, so I'll share some pics with you. This was my "weekend project", since the family was away for the weekend.

Thank you Amigo!!!

The one thing I was really going for was that "mine" look. I wasn't trying to make it perfect. I was just trying to show my humble respect for one of the greatest players. It turned out exactly how I wanted it to.

Thanks again for the positive vibe!

Yeah, I can't wait for it to be done as well. I've got the harness and pups (GFS Alnico II's), but I want to get an All-Parts neck for it. My Squiers are too thick at the heel.
