So I have always been fascinated with gears and cogs and such and that sort of Mad Max backwards future stuff too [Of course Tank Girl holds a special place in my heart]. So the other day I decided to do some customizing for my guitar in the vein of steampunk stuff. I figured since my guitar is a goldtop--a classic LP style guitar-- adding some more classic things to do it would be nice.. So I am replacing the old Grover tuning keys with some classic Kluson ones and getting some different P-90 pickups for a more grittier sound aaaaaand....etching out a new pickguard [im not fucking up the original I just bought a new one]. The idea is simple--gears and shit, similar to my snowboard design which will pop up after this. So anyway this is my first true etching I'll have the final piece when its all done but here is the sketch I did for it [Vector sketch].
