    Guys,

    I've been thinking about a color scheme change for my dirnt. I tried my best to mock one up using a virtual guitar flash program. basically, White blonde with a Bakelite Pickguard (think old tele)

    That and I'm pulling off the badass for a low mass vintage hipshot bridge and I'll pop in a Nordie NP4.

    I wonder if Roxy guitar finish has completed their move and are up and running again.

    I think it looks cool kind of like the 70s meets the early 50s

    The fun part will be stripping the polyester off. oh boy :help:

    Bummer, usually everyone is so eager to lend their opinion. Oh well. But thanks to Hambone for the advice on the Poly removal. Hey who knows if I can remove the finish safely and with a high level of skill I may be able to help others with those pesky thick fender finishes.

    Hmmm.

    Looks nice and simple. Dare I say, I definitely looks more "punk" than the standard Dirnt burst finish. Good luck with it.
