Final assembly of the ‘holocaster’, a black stratocaster body sprayed with a large metal flake finish, is all done and here are some shots.
Finishing up the neck. Kurt Vonnegut books are just the right size to use as jigs 🙂

I am not sure what caused that strange blurry blemish in the photo above – this is not a problem with the guitar. I suspect it is a bug in the iPhone post production depth of field adjustment or perhaps some strange interplay with the holoflake finish.
Lots of fun! Ciao.
