Always been a big fan of Pink Floyd and guitars. Also after years of painting cars and furniture I wanted to take it to a new level and try out some airbrushing and this is what I came up with. This project took me about 200 hours to complete. The artwork of the Schoolmaster was painted time and time again on paper until I was confident enough to spray it on the guitar. The finish on the base is a water base urethane and the neck is the traditional lacquer. Hope you enjoy the post.
