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

What did you use to fill the mess?
But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.
