Nice, I like the sticker;)

This is my peral white Ibanez GSR-200 and my recently modded faux Strat (Kramer VT111S w/ DiMarzio Super Distortion/PAF Pro pup combo, split coils, checkerboard pickguard). I decided to post them together because they're a couple.
EDIT: Oh, and there's an Offspring poster in the background :) There's also a NOFX concert ticket signed by Smelly and El Hefe :)
Well, I've come back after two years to update my stuff. In my previous post I showed the guitar I had and mentioned a drum set I wanted to get. I also showed another guitar I wanted to get but I lost interest in getting it.
So here's what I have now.
Here's the drum set, I got it probably a little bit after my old post:
Here's my amp/effects set up for guitar:
Here's my bass amp:
And here's all my guitars/bass:
That's a Squier Jaquar bass, an Ibanez RG 2EX2, a Fender American Standard Strat, and an Ibanez AEL20E Acoustic-Electric guitar.
A long time ago I wasn't even interested in strats and thought I'd never get one, but that was when I first started playing guitar and based it solely on looks. But I really like their sound and also like the way they look now.
Im just about done a guitar I started making in 08 haha. Finally, I just painted it yesterday and im working on the electronics now, still a bit of routing to do though. The electronics and neck are from and old Squier Tele that wasn't that nice looking anymore, but the parts were good so I took it apart. I originally wanted to have the same electronics/hardware as a Les Paul, but I don't really have the money and I already had the Tele parts. Eventually when I save up some cash I'll either upgrade to some better Tele Pickups and electronics, or the Les Paul stuff, but for now I just want it finally done :P
I didn't use any pore filler on the wood and didn't prime it before painting, I wanted to see the wood grain through the paint cause it's oak and has really nice grain patterns. I just did like a coat and a half of black and a single coat of clear, then polished it with rubbing compound and buffed it. It's got some really good shine to it for how quick I did it, I'm impressed haha. All those autobody courses I took seem to be working, the last few guitars I've painted have turned out real well.
One tom is missing. I had to change top (batter) head :D
So V-RG Builder came back online recently, and I decided to mess around on it. I ended up creating this https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.n...30951705_n.jpg. Thennnn I got the crazy idea to actually refinish my RG like that. So after a couple weeks of sanding, painting, and rewiring, here's what I ended up with! https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.n...93476323_n.jpg
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, I only ended up with one or two small drips in the paint, and they're in out of sight places so its no worry. Pretty good for a quick paint job at least :)
Here's an album documenting the change from how it used to look to what it is now https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...1&l=3e92fe2972
My RG and Strat, both repainted by me. There's a story on the RG in the post above this, as for the strat I really just wanted to paint another guitar after i did the RG, and that design kinda popped into my head so i went through with it.
Had a little fun with the back of the RG too
This is my guitar. Nothing fancy, it's a Starcaster I got like 8 or 9 years ago.
This is the sticker on the bottom. I'm not sure how well it shows up in that photo.
This is my bass. It's a 6-string Sound Gear by Ibanez.
Here's my kit in the set up I've been using lately. I have a few other cymbals, two other toms, and a couple other snare drums, but this is the way I like it. The shells are nothing to write home about, but I do think that I have managed to prove that good heads and good tuning can make even a lower end drum kit sound professional.
