Risking filling up Beagles server, but here is your idea John. The ice blue didn't look that good, so changed it to a deep blue. This would look good with some texture added to the flames I think.

im pretty sure you have to remove the frett board. then cut a channel for the wires then put the fret board back on.

Thanks john. I like them. I think they are a little neck heavy but they do sound nice.

Hey Mike - great job! Looks really good. Make sure you post a photo once it is all polished and strung.
