So, it's been a while but I have a couple of new pics of the progress so far :thumbs

The body has had the homemade trem recess filled, it's been sanded down to remove the dings & now has the undercoat & base black layer added, the licensed floyd is there just to make sure that the cutout is the correct size :thumbs
