    this is #1 of about 60 of these I'll be doing over the next several months. I'd appreciate any constructive criticism or general opinions my fellow Grumblers might have to offer.

    That's a perfect presentation. Lots to see. Great color, perfect composition, layers are a nice idea, no blank spaces, and the overall impression is as busy as that band.

    I like it!
    I've done many of the signed Fender Squire "Strats" and signed drum heads myself and I like the layout that you did.
    Sometimes I look at a layout and I want to make it a grid pattern and "too perfect" but then often the artistic sort of "chaos" is the best way to go and it looks great.
    When I mount the Fender Squires or Strats I like to use the plate that attaches the neck to the body and I just replace a couple of the screws with stainless steel screws that are longer and go thru the backing with large fender washers.
    Fender washers for a Fender guitar I guess...:rolleyes:

    How did you attach the guitar if you don't mind telling?
    And you've only got 59 more to do.....:p

    Looks fantastic - great color and presentations.

    if you squint just right you can see the acrylic brackets attached at the two strap knobs. Just a 2" wide piece of 1/4" acrylic bent at 90° with a few strategically placed holes. One big hole in the upright portion to screw the strap knob through and a few smaller holes in the part hidden by the guitar body where I used 3/8" aluminum screw posts to attach to the gator board backing.
