    First post here so let me introduce myself
    I'm Frank (47) played a lot when I was younger and stopped for app 15-17 years but picked it up again recently and luckily don't have to start at zero (it actually surprised me how fast I'm getting back)

    Normal live : photographer specialized in workshops

    Normally we do a lot of videos on photography but I decided it would also be fun to do something outside that box :)
    So today part I of my series "The guitar project" was uploaded.

    The vlogs I always edit and film very rough, in my opinion how a vlog should be.
    In this part I talk about the squier we are going to change and show my (by now vintage) collection of gear and guitars.

    Any suggestions feel free to let me know.
    For my normal work visit www.frankdoorhof.com




    Enjoy.

    Welcome! Very cool so far and thanks for taking the time to document the project.

    Now I see why you left the pickguard on to paint it.

    I’m a huge Batman fan and always wanted to do something like this with a guitar! And I’m glad to see someone do a project like this. I see so many home made Harley Davidson guitars, it’s cool to see something different than that and of the comic book world. Usually if you see a comic themes guitar it’s a cheap model, except for Satrianis silver surfer guitar of course. Can’t wait to see more man!

    This was a squier I bought for 75.00
    Guy really messed it up.
    Took all electronics out and replaced it with EMG pickups and controls.

    Tuners were ok and bridge is good.

    This guitar plays super smooth and fast. So I decided it had to be the guitar for my Batman guitar.

    I'm a huge Batman and comics fan so had to do that first. In the future I also want to do something with universal monsters.

    In comics I love Batman and the EC like stories/comics.
