    Just finished up my latest partscaster. MiM Black Paisley body, custom made neck with ebony board, black finish. Everything Axe Single Coil Sized Humbuckers with two toggles. One splits the neck and bridge, the other activates the neck in any position. I'm pretty happy with it, except I need to track down a grounding issue, but I'm headed to my stepsons baseball game so it'll have to wait. But anyway, here's a couple pics!

    That looks awesome. Is the back of the neck/headstock painted, too?

    Fender should make that for the masses!

    Looks great, but needs black tuners to properly complete the theme! I assume you already knew that.
    Nice Work!

    I disagree. The black metals on the body offset against all the lighter colors in the paisley whereas the tuners as he has them offset against the black headstock.

    I have black Tuners ordered but they're not in yet. I had these Standard ones lying around so I threw them on. But seeing them, I like them. I don't know what I'll do. Definitely going to put the black ones on when they come in and see what they look like. The black ones are vintage Tuners, which are my preference. And I have conversion bushings coming with them.

    There's a look at the back of the guitar. The paint matched up pretty decent I think. I'm very happy with it.

    I think she fits in pretty well!
