Pawn shop treasure diving!

Recommended Posts

I got this at a pawn shop for 85 no tax, after a little haggling. The guy that owned it previously was a DIY punker at best, and wrote "GOBY" on the fretboard with magic marker, and wrote numbers corresponding to the frets down the neck, and also redid the paint job to purple with a green pickguard. I used paintstripper on the pickguard, but ended up making all the many layers of plastic bubble, so I sanded it smooth, applied lots of puddy to fill in the holes, and then put some pretty cream paint on it. Anyway, here is what I got so far:

I know it's a little rough around the edges, I just used spray paint and masking techniques to do this little baby, and it's my first time doing this at all. I plan on putting the clear coating en masse all over the body and then BAM it'll be all done.

Good color scheme? I was going for a sort of revamped competition mustang scheme, hope everyone likes!
