    Django started a thread over a decade ago, and all of the photos are not... there anymore...

    So let's start over! Show off your kool pinstriped or custom guitars!

    I'll start with an Epiphone Les Paul in Pelham blue I added a few lines to today.

    Here's one I did recently. Was a mid 60's no name Japanese. Best guess is a '66 Kawai. I added a P90 pickup & a cheap tremolo. Was a redburst, now satin black with pinstripes by my friend Johnny B Good. I love the stainless steel pick guard. Skeeterbilt is kind of an inside joke.

    No, it's a lady off etsy that makes custom watermark decals like they did bitd. Like model airplane decals...

  10. Here’s mine.... Striping them makes them cooler, but I still can’t play them. Lol

    No stripes but look at that flake! All spray-bombs on a cheapie LP copy. Hot rod pick-ups and a Bigsby, too.

    Yes itˋs custombuilt and Billy Gibbons have a similar shaped one but this one will be a B-Bender. Micael

    Wow there are a bunch of neat guitars out there! That Gretsch Billy-Bo Thunderbird is outta sight! I've done a few more since the original post.
    That flake is wild @flatheadpete !
