    You nailed the shape of the headstock, looks perfect. I really like the flourishes you added to the pickguard, simple and classy!

    That looks great. I used the Rustoleum on my EVH Frankenstein and it works really well, its a good thing you only see her every second weekend though as it takes ages to go hard. And I do mean ages to fully cure - we are talking weeks not days. BUT if you are patient the finish is very durable and shiny, I like it as a product a lot.
    The scratch plate looks great!
    A few years ago I re-purposed my daughter's no longer needed 3/4 strat copy in pink for my son by painting it in teenage mutant turtle green and purple and covering it in TMNT stickers!
    Ancient scratch build, The Imprecision Bass
    #1 LP in Harley flat black/orange (workhorse!)
    #2 RC4-A with double humbuckers, The Binned Guitar
    #3 non PBG EVH Frankenstrat
    #4 SV1, The Blast from the Past
    #5 Non-PBG LP semi hollow
    #6 TL-A Tele Strat hybrid, The Teleblaster
    #7 JB4 -A for Macklay VC
    #8 Custom SG, The Cliché

    That's looking great. I like rustoleum as well but it really does take ages to get properly hard.
