    It is actually a little different to this stock Pit Bull photo. Different pick-ups and 4 pots instead of 3.

    That looks wild! Nice.

    That’s a stunning finish, how did you achieve that?

    Yeah, that's cool.
    It looks like some sort of mineral (which is very fitting if you live in WA and happen to be in the mining industry!)

    Very nice effect, that will really pop with some clear over it.
    I would have masked up the neck pocket, but as long as you don't have huge solid dollops of the finish in there it should all sit sweet.

    I cheated with the finish. It has been Hydro-dipped in a rust finish with a matt clear coat over the top ..................... coz rust isn't shiny!!
