well it took two or three weeks to bend all that plastic and stainless steel and get it stuck on right, and less than an hour to take it all off again.

yesterday, halfway through the sanding process (my binding bit has a bearing .2mm smaller than the binding, so i had to sand it all down slowly, if i'd done it fast the binding would have heated up and melted the glue) i took the tape off the front and back for the first time.

now i dont know if i got a less dense opal plastic, or if its just his choice of wood - ash - but you could clearly see the grain through it. bastard. he told me that the original is clearly solid white. i told him it clearly wasnt, and we used opal because he wanted it to be like the original. so either i didnt explain it clearly enough to him, or he didnt understand it properly, but either way, its all off, and solid white plastic is on the way.

in other news, if anyone wants any opal plastic, i've got a shit load of it for sale

That guitar is a part of K&T history

Was he not able to find the other one that hooglebug completely built from the ground up?

I think the original was ash. It must be the transparency of that plastic because the original one DEFINITELY wasn't solid white. Sure, it looks like that on stage, but in the other pictures, you can see the control route through the front. It's probably also how he got the light up headstock logo to work.

i know it wasnt solid. otherwise the leds wouldnt have shown through. i just dont think he really understood what was happening.

anyway, its off now and ready for the new stuff. whenever that shows up.

also, crikey, that takes me back. not necessarily in a good way either!

musecasters made a guitar for someone from korn and someone wanted him to do a copy of it but he wouldnt so james sent him to me. only its not a proper copy because its not having leds or a midi strip. and now no opal plastic, just white
