  15. Nitro applied by Ben Lyndsey of Toledo Ohio...I did the rest.
    I'm spraying my own now - this one inspired me so much...
    PS Love your 5 banger - awesome color!
    Nice subtle beatup on your sunburst P as well.

    That's not too bad as a replica... maybe a bit over cooked. There should be a screw in the middle of the pickguard... interesting concept.

    Thanks. The P is the second bass I've reliced. The 5 I sanded the edges to create the wear marks, with the P I wanted to create nicks in the bass like you would if you hit it on something. I used a small exato knife to nick the bass. Just flakes the paint right off.

    Fiesta Red. I did put the amber clear coat over it which slightly ages the color so it's not so bright.
