I shouldn't be allowed out by myself, far less trusted with any money...

Avenger 325, in rag order but complete apparently, to my door for A$120.

Hmmm... what to do?! What to do?!

Ideas for the finish, people; let's have them! I think I'm done with the martial theme now, so let's get our thinking caps on, eh? Something involving the Australian and NZ flags? nah.. a bit naff!

Come on... let's have them...

How about you just assemble it as is and use it as a basher :P

Mate... my "basher" is at your place!!

No, I like these a lot and would like to do something special for the finish. Besides... this one is black... and I loathe black!

Was thinking I might mod it slightly for slide... high nut and bridge... dunno; I've always played slide on a normal guitar in concert pitch, so I really dunno!! First time I've had a project and no bloody idea what to do!

GAS is such a cruel Mistress. There should be an App for that...
...or at least an ointment.

Hmm, let's see...y'all already got tribute themes, swamp thing (green), blues of all kinds, reds, and a Strat that looks like a cow.
Ya hate black, so that pretty much leaves purple, orange, or (wait for it!) DISCO Sparkle!

Ya that's the ticket. Glitzy, glittery, burn-yer-eye-holes-out-on-the-reflection-from-the-spotlight Disco ball finish. Hey, it's an 80's geetar.
If you can add shoulder pads and big hair yer golden mate! Image

Coloured LED's? Woo hoo! :hyper:

Ye gods and little fishies!!

That is epic!! I shall look into prices but I suspect that it'll be way beyond what I'm comfortable spending on a $120 guitar, eh!

I was also considering reflex paint as in used on TVR sports cars but I know how much that costs!!

(on iPad and can't figure out how to add youtube page addresses!! )
