no, im pretty sure Kurts didnt have a lefty one.

You are correct. He flipped his trem bar so the strings would go straight through. The hole for the trem arm looks right for a lefty, because he flipped his righty. :)

I saw this one in person at the EMP in Seattle.

lol, thanks. taking a few days away from it. being around paint all weekend tends to get annoying, will update more next weekend :)

Hey smallclone, where did you buy that masking tape that is cut to size? I may need some of that.

Very nice.

Did you get the body from Warmoth?

Is was looking for one over there but it didn't seem to have the contours.

Or did you sanded those yourself?

Can't wait to see the end-result...

I cant say im a huge fan of warmoth at all, i get everything from tk custom guitars, they do body contours or slab board mustangs and have the most wonderful customer service

How good are TK's bodies, I was thinking of either getting a Mustang body from there or their Bo-Diddley Jupiter Thunderbird body
