It's supposed to be a Plazma Ball... I admit dosen't look a LOT like one, but it's cool none the less.

It's NOT polished yet. I found out today that i can't polish it yet (with any kind of wax) until the poly cures for 90 days. I said heck with it and put it back together, and in 90 days I'll take it back apart and polish her up and make her nice and shiney.


Upgrades include :
* Seymour Duncan George Lynch Screamn' Deamon pup
* Gotoh tremolo

Here is the inspiration...

Here is the steps I took.
* Took guitar apart
* Scuffed existing clear coat with 1000 grit sandpaper.
* I layed down some fresh black AutoAir air brush paint.
* Layed down white AutoAir air brush paint for all my electricity.
* Layed down magenta AutoAir candy coat air brush paint.
* Layed down blue AutoAir candy coat air brush paint.
* Layed down some white detail over the magenta candy for extra detail.
* Clear coated it with 2K poly.

It's gonna POP when I can finally buff it out and make it shine.

I will... This guitar is proof that you don't have to spend loads of money to have a great playing guitar. I payed $250 for it and it plays like a champ!
