Thats looking really cool, and unique to! I have never seen anyhting like those covers. This agains shows how creative people can be. Good job Boo!

Thanks, I love this range of colours they are so vivid. Obviously I’ve done some EVH masking on these so when I pull that off, there are white pearl stripes. I just need to go clear coat them now.

Just unmasked these and put clear coat on. As I unmasked, the paint had bled under some of the masking. My workshop is really cold so maybe the line tape has moved in the low temperature. When I put the tape on, I made sure it was stuck properly but for one reason or another, it’s moved. So, these are not perfect but they will still look pretty cool. My customer loves all the little imperfect things about home made guitar builds so he will still love these. He doesn’t know they are coming but he will at Christmas, they are going to Utah, USA.

I’ve just put 4 coats of clear coat on these and I’ll come back to it all tomorrow. 

Things always look better in the morning (sometimes 🤣). I’ve got an idea to disguise the paint bleeding. 😁🤘

Uh-mazing job on those EVH covers! 

Personally I prefer open face pickups but this is such a great idea that I’m absolutely going to fookin’ steal it 🤪

But seriously, what was your idea to correct the bleed through?

@mattbeels Thanks man. I never ended up correcting it, it labelled it as character. 🤣 The guy loved it that way too, thank goodness. 

My idea was to add some carefully placed black stripes to cover the worst of the bleed, it would have looked a little more EVH too. This of course would have needed further clear coat, sanding and more clear coat. I wouldn’t have minded putting the effort in but I had run out of time, they needed to be painted, gassed off, cured, packed up and parcelled off the America in time for Christmas. They got there in time and my friend was very happy with them.
