and i think i'm gonna drop my strat in again.

that's me and my geets, the strat's all the way on the left, the one that looks like a strat :D






blank headstock i cleaned up and put my sig on:


and my fancy blue strap buttons:


this was just a custom refinish/clean-up/fixer-upper job i did. it was formerly a laminated, mexican made affinity squier stratocaster. i put the standard (non-adjustable poles) fender p-ups on it, just to get rid of the nasty hum and crappy sounding ones that were on there, re-built the electronics (the same way they were) with better solder joints and whatnot, just to keep it clean, cleared the headstock, bought that alder body off my friend and attached my neck to it (the fretboard was silicon oiled, a special mixture that i worked on with a couple trombone players i know).

the finish was done with minwax clear stain and minwax ebony stain, with a brushed on paint of some sort for the 1/4" outline on the flames. the blue strap buttons were spray painted, 'cause the last finish i had on it was metallic flake blue, so they matched.

Hi. I realize everyone's probably already seen this one, but i figured I'd see how it fared in a contest :D This is "Thinskull 1", or TS1. TS1 is an old '80s Kramer Striker. It is a laminated body, which makes carving like this SO much easier, especially since I didn't have my Dremel yet when I did it.

It has a set of Seymour Duncan H/S/S with 5 way switch, 1 volume, 2 tones and a coil tap switch. Floyd Rose II double locking tremolo.

Anyway, here are the pics with some explanation for anyone who hasn't seen it.


I used razor blades and chisels to carve the black areas down, which left the other areas higher. I used wood putty to build up around the eyes and cheekbones, and also horns coming from the eye sockets up to the top of the skull. I got the crackled finish by painting the whole thing black, then clear coating it. I then used gray primer over the clear coat and it seperated leaving all these cool gashes in it. (It's something I did by accident once, but remembered the results.) Then a final coating of clear. The neck is also painted black and buffed to a good shine.



For the headstock "Thinskull" logo, I printed out THINSKULL at the right size and font, then I cut the letters out. I used Elmer's glue and dripped it on each letter until it filled the letter to the edge. After that was dry, I glued it to the headstock and painted it red. I really like the contour of it. I'm really starting to dislike flat surfaces B)



I had to do a good bit of sculpting on this one because I had the 5-way switch and coil tap switch to make way for. On TS2, I just covered them all up :D


Well, there ya go. Thanks for looking :D

These are pretty crappy pictures, but they are the best I do. These are TONS better on my 35mm film. In the actual photo, you can see the wood grain through the transparent candy red.

I suppose I should say a little something about it.

1993 Gibson LP Studio

Ebony Fret Board

Pearl and Ablone Inlay

Transparent Candy Apple Red

Fret markers are diamonds B) Looks real cool too.

Good Luck to Everyone!! :D
