    I really had my doubts as to the outcome of this build at first. But now, you have really stepped up and won me over!! All I need to witness now is a righteous riff!!

    That was the plan all along my friend. Although I modified an existing guitar stand so that I could use/transport any electric guitar, and the guitar rack is removable, this guitar was the one I had in mind for the final pics.

    Good decision on the bar swap and those red flake grips.
    You've knocked it out of the stadium just like the Beatles did in Shea.

    I have discovered a new need...
    If I'm going to go play out, I'll need a cord and I'd like a strap as well. Looks like I need a saddle bag to carry my essentials in. Because what kind of roady doesn't bring everything the musician needs to the gig?

    Maybe you can fab some sort of gig bag between the seat tubes. Looks about the right size for a stick bag.

    I have an old gibson bag i won at CES a number of years back id offer up, but for the life of me, cant find it. Would be cool to find one of the old hard top/bottom'd bags to hang on the right side of the rear wheel...

    If this was painted black and white polkadots, you could call it Randy Rhodie.:21:


    I agree with TRM tho, there's plenty of space there.

    I've got these for sale, brown leather, red stitching. 28506_b60ff42cbb40c2933d7600b103018333.jpg 28509_c8c058752498703b7f63047b0429519c.jpg They're around the same width as your guitar. If you want one shoot me a pm and we can figure out a price that works for you.
