Customized Beatles Guitar Paint Job - Using Sharpie Pens

Bought a cheap guitar body recently on eBay for £5. decided I wanted to do a Beatles design on it.

After sanding the lacquer off  I drew my design on in pencil. Then got a a Sharpie thin liner pen and went over my design


If you find it difficult to draw an accurate design you can print out pics from internet then cut them out to use them as a template.

I was going to paint my design with acrylic paint. But decided to test out some coloured Sharpie pens.

Below is the result so far

Wolf Sunburst Les Paul Electric Guitar, WLP 200 review

Wolf Sunburst Les Paul Electric Guitar, WLP 200

Just got my hands on this the other day. Quite a nice guitar for the price. (£30 on gumtree)
Comes with a thru neck nice low action. Pickups are ok but nothing amazing.
Cant find much about them but a nice guitar none the less
The Wolf Les Paul is heavier than the Epiphone Les Paul.

Burns Cobra Guitar - review

 The Burns Cobra - £199

Ive been reading a lot of the reviews about this guitar and it sounds pretty cool.
For the price of lower priced Fender Strat or a Squire Strat you seem to get a lot more for your money.

The biggest plus point is the Trisonic pickups (ala Brian May) which give a rich sound.

The wiring of the guitar is special, and includes some interesting possibilities.

With push pull pick up control

 
The guitar seems to hold in tune pretty well too
Dark rosewoodforms the fingerboard, with a 10" radius and medium frets. The bolt-on maple neck has a bi-directional truss rod and it feels fantastic, with a lovely slim early 1960s Fender feel.

For a budget guitar you get a lot for your money and it looks pretty cool too. This is also the first time you can get yourself a copy of a 60's style Burns guitar without paying over a £1000
