I finished my DC Comics guitar!

Thank you to every single one of you who sent me support and compliments when I showed my first day of working on this. I’ve honestly been so terrified of finishing this thing, but everyone cheering me on helped me so much mentally c: it is FAR from perfect, but I expected that to be the case before I even started cutting out comic panels. I’m very happy to show you all the finished product!!

Thank you! And I haven’t had time yet to plug her in since finishing her up, but as long as I didn’t heck up anything too bad she should still play amazing!

Thank you! I roughed up the lacquer a tiny bit with some 0000 steel wool, used painters tape to cover up all areas I didn’t want affected, and then I used mod podge to stick on clippings I took from comic books. After that I sprayed it with some clear gloss spray paint, and slathered it up with more mod podge to dilute the gloss because I sprayed way too much and had it super uneven haha. I used an exacto knife to cut all the edges, and I sprayed many coats of the gloss. I tried sanding some of the coats to get them super smooth, but I kept tearing some of the paper and decided it wasn’t worth it. I just sprayed enough that I felt it was well protected, and then polished it up like I would any of my other guitars @conanthebarbarian

Killer work Man!! I’ve thought of doing something similar. Are those actual pages from comic books or did you print out some pages through a computer printer?

They’re from comic books! I thought about printing them out but feared they wouldn’t come out well, the ink may spread, etc. And once I started it was like “Well now I HAVE to do the whole thing with comic books” it just wouldn’t feel like a “comic book guitar” if part of the images came from my printer haha

You say you won’t do this again but given your sheer talent and creativity, I have a feeling you’ll be on a new just as stressful and just as cool project! :wink::+1:t2:
