    I never thought that a B.C. Rich would look good with pinstriping (maybe except the Mockingbird).

    The Explorer is done, it isn't that 100% perfect as if a professional pinstriper would have done it but I really like it and I just paid 35 €.
    I have to clean it when the lacquer is completely dry.

    I like the cross! Looks pretty good!

    If she used One Shot enamel make sure you put a good coat of wax over it every once in a while

    Thanks friends! Now I've slept one night and I still like it when I see it - so it's great


    BTW: Yeah Amon Amarth shows are really great, I've seen 'em 3 times (2006, 2007, 2008), really powerful and amazing show.

    Sweet, man. I'm not even a big fan of Explorers but I really dig that. Nice work by your friend.

    I like the truss rod cover. That's a nice touch.

    Rock it hard, man.
    I remember calloused hands and paint-stained jeans, and I remember safe-as-houses self-belief.
