    Fender Squire Make Over

    I've been experimenting with a art design style called Lichtenberg patterns or wood Fractals. I use high voltage electricity to burn these patterns into wood.
    I've been using Turquoise, Malachite & other crushed stone to inlay into the burns and create cool walking sticks, boxes & various other things.

    Here are some photos of the bass I'm working on.
    Feedback would be appreciated.

    Wow, very interesting. Never seen anything quite like this before. I particularly like it against the natural wood, it gives it a very organic feel. Very intriguing, I think you're onto something! I'd love to see more.

    Very cool indeed. Instead of turquoise inlay, could you do a red or orange or yellow, as befits the lightning look?

    I have red coral & I can get a yellow/gold powder. Not sure about orange...

    Whoa....I looked at the pics before I read your post and thought it was just blue paint. Very cool!

    So I got back on track with my P-Bass project. I created my own pickguard out of cherry. Bought a Mexican Fender roasted maple neck, EMG Geezer Butler PJ pickups and now I need a really reliable set of tone/volume pots with the plug Jack. Any recommendations?

    ^^ Unlike Mylar vs Ceramic vs Metal Film capacitors, potentiometers and jacks are going to have zero impact on the way it sounds. Any decent quality units will suffice.
