    Well I found myself in the German city of Aachen and I saw this body for sale at one of their music shop and it came with a neck included.

    20 Euros later it was mine. The body came without hardware and the finish was rough, so I decided to raid my own parts pantry and put it together with whatever I had lying around.
    DSC01800.JPG I still have to fit a pickup and I couldn't find a G string but this is what I have so far.
    DSC01801.JPG The "Pickguard" is a license plate, the "Born from pain" sticker covers up the rout of the J-bass pickup since I'm going for the one pickup only thing here. And for good measure I sprayed a little white on the upper half of the body to offset that yellow license plate.
    DSC01802.JPG The tuners are from two incomplete sets, the E tuner is different from the other three. The neck itself has an issue with the trussrod but other than that plays just fine.

    I like it. I especially like the license plate pickguard. Most of all, I like the rough cut floor that you used for the background.
  3. I like. Definite punk feel. I'd rock it.
