    That's the way to do it. There's no overlap. Did you paint them yourself? The finishes look great. Do you have closeup shots?

        Thanks, yes I did. The yellow was supposed to be more of a butterscotch, but I overdid it with the tint. Still I like how it came out, even though not as I pictured it. As my first about 2 years ago, I never really properly wet sanded and polished it so it has a good amount of overspray. I am going to fix it up and recoat it with clear. Bryan's A3 pickups give it a great early Page sound with a lot of lush metallic overtones.







        The blue one was my second, done the end of this fall. It is the best finish quality of the 3 and I think that has to do with the ease of use of the duplicolor acrylic lacquer vs nitro.











        The Esquire needs another color coat and then clear over that to cover up some areas where the finish did not cover properly. Rattle cans are on their way. More pics to follow the refinish

                    Nice. I've got a ZPB in my Esquire too. No tap on mine, though. Hotter than stock, but there's no mistaking it for anything but Tele/Esquire. Big, bold and twangy. David makes some of the best pickups - each one custom made for about the same price you'd pay for a Duncan or DiMarzio.
