]So I ended up getting the $150 Striker from Gumtree and it was a wreck, someone had used $2 rattle cans on the body and neck which were bubbling.. So I thought I would just use it to practice fret work and spray technique and experiment with filling pickup cavities (wood blocks and a thin layer of spray putty over the top).. Stole my Dads spray gear and some paint and this is what I ended up with.. You can just barely see the lines where the pickups were very faintly, so Im glad it was only a Striker and not a more valuable guitar. Good learning experience though..

Now I wanna find and old Baretta body to fix up.

Also the pickup that came with it is a 80's Duncan Distortion wound by Maricela Juarez from the Duncan Custom shop which was a nice suprise, that will probably end up in a better guitar.
