Default My DIY Monterey Pop strat

Hi guys,
this is a project I'm currently working on so I'd like to share with you how far I've gotten so far:

I don't know how to embed a playlist 'cause I've got 6 videos so far...

Thanks guys been working on this one for the last 2 months.
The idea is to learn on this bullet strat and then do the same to a nice guitar.
I don't have a compressor so I'm doing this with cans of aerosols mixed for car painting by the guys in the car paint shop. The graphics I've done using POSCA PENS I got from ebay.
It's nearly done, but now is the hard part... I've put on a lot of coats of clear and am now waiting for weeks before it dries completely so I can sand and polish the lacquer and assemble it. I tell you guys these weeks seem like months now :-)

I agree. Sounds a bit like Jeff Beck covering JP. Not a slavish rendition, but true to the original.

I've now made a timelapse of the whole process inside 3 minutes for all of you that don't want to go through all the videos, hope you enjoy this, Looks very easy when you fit a few months of work into 3 minutes of video
