After a couple of misfires due to nitro/humidity issues, (first try turned into a pinkburst :eek:) I finally have some color on my Les Paul clone.

To refresh your memories, here's what we started with:



and this is what we have now:




The camera flash kind of distorts the color a bit and wet sanding/buffing will tone it down as well, but I'm real pleased with the results so far. It has a kind of Jimmy Page #1 vibe to it I think.

Great job. It really highlights the details of the woodgrain. It should look really nice once it's been buffed. Don't forget to post more pictures.

Nice colour choice... great lower 2/3rds but I'm not hot on the paint transitions around the upper bout and the horn... they seem a bit abrupt to me, especially considering how subtle and skillful it is on the lower body.

Still, way to go... doing your own paint job is pretty righteous. Keep us in the loop as you go!
