  • Refinished a beater 7-string. Check out the finished product.

    So I bought this awhile back knowing that I would probably repaint it and add some decent pickup(s) to it. Washburn WG587 (paid $125 I think).

    Before:











































    After. Repainted it....flat black with a flat clear finish. Added a Bareknuckle Warpig in the bridge.








    Sounds real beefy. The Warpig is crazy hot....still working on my settings with D60 but like it so far. I had planned on doing a swirl with a forumite but decided against it this time.....I will do one eventually though.

    But anyways, there you go.

      Rattlecan? It looks great in that color. Much better than the original

          From gold sparkle to something that looks like it came out of a military surplus warehouse?

              I like the bowling ball look.

              I like the new flat black look better. Definitely more metal. Looks great m/

                          The silver sparkle was not my thing at all. I've always wanted to do something in flat black for a long time.....thank you ESP.

                          This is all rattle can....probably 7 coats of black, followed by about 8 coats of spray clear with wet sanding. This thing is baby's ass smooth.

                              Love it!

                              I've often thought about doing that to my WG587, but I'm way too lazy!
