          the body is all welded up
          so for the finish, first i want to make it whit and call it the white angel
          but a usual i always change things (i do not know why lol)

          the middle part is now burned metal, it gives a nice blue shiny effect (bluing steel) i always want to try that
          i slightly heet up the steel to get that effect and to prevent it from bending in all directions
          it was a guess but it turned out extremely well, and the steel is not changed at all (to do that it took 1 hour of heating the metal)
          the rest of the body is painted black
          now it has a more Hot Rod stylish look


          here is the result

                      I'd be more than happy to do a long term user review if you send it over here!

                        How do you bond the bridge and tailpiece into the guitar?? The typical wood 'knurl bushing' I wouldn't have thought to be that great for metal insertion.
