*yawn*
So, my husband saw a guitar posted on here that someone had painted and a light bulb went off in his head.  A few days later I found him, dremel in hand, mumbling to himself about how "badass" this was going to be.
Next thing I knew I was painting on a bass guitar.
I finally finished, and i'm tired.
I like it a bunch, pretty happy with it.
Plus, I got to do some tattooey stuff which is nice since I'm on hiatus from tattooing right now.

Woohoo bass! ( also, it's new name is Cletus)
Also, I know most of these photos are sideways, but It's 2 am and I'm realllly tired.  So I'll fix them tomorrow.






( the happy husband!)


Andd....goodnight!

I'm so glad I inspired someone enough to actually risk a well working guitar to try out refinishing it  Grin

you did an amazing job on the painting!

Thanks so much!

I'm actually working on his other bass and both cases now.
I can't wait until they're done so I can post them!
