I may have posted it a while back. Wound up with a pretty badly mangled CS-350 body and neck I figured I'd have some fun with. I don't have many "during" pics though. I decided to add a little humor to the resurrection. I love no-bake cheesecake. Hmmm..... I feel a theme coming on. :D

Oh, Barry like!! :love:
Beautiful resurrection and looks like it'll rawk with the best of 'em too!

If you are looking just casually at the headstock, without any background info, you could be forgiven if the first impression you have is that it is a PRS. And then that carved bum suggests it might be a Daion.

Messes with yer head...but in a good way! Very creative and I really dig the two tone colours.

I wasn't sure what to do with it. I was sitting there at the workbench while eating a piece of cheesecake. A light bulb went off. I bet there won't be another like it i thought. :rofl:

Sadly I gave it to a friend who soon became a meth head and he pawned it for dope money. The same jerk broke into my basement and stole several boxes, two contained parts, some expensive, and another full of important documents. Ones I couldn't replace. I went to the pawn shop but the owner's kid wanted it and was not willing to sell it to me. That was the last I saw of the guitar. I did however cost them enough money to regret that decision. :x :devil2:

Yes, the headstock was a dig on Poor Rich Snot.

That's nice; really subtle body changes and the colour's a revelation! Is the name on the headstock engraved onto a thin piece of perspex?
