Painting fools!

My wife's "nesting" again, pending the birth of our third child in January, so we've been painting rooms. Did the living room, the kitchen area, the dining area, lots of borders and edges, and now she's attacking the wallpaper border in the eldest child's room with an intensity normally reserved for rottweillers eating steak. Needless to say, I've been busy. I've also been tackling a "birthday project"; rescusitating an old Ibanez 540S Saber guitar with all new parts. I've got a Carvin neck, Seymour Duncan "Dave Mustaine" Live Wire pickups, and just need to earn more money so I can buy a Gotoh Floyd Rose bridge for it. I had to strip the old Lipstick Red finish and then sand away the clear sealer/polyurethane finish underneath in order to reveal the wonderful mahogany wood. It's looking nice so far, better than my painting skills!

My birthday's this Saturday and I'm certain my guitar won't be finished by then, but the house sure better be! LOL
