Here, at long last, is my finished Iceman project. :)

The body and neck were painted in pelham blue metallic by http://www.guitarpaintguys.com and they did an amazing job. Unfortunately, since they painted the neck pocket and heel, the neck no longer fit, so I had to sand off some of the pocket and cracked the edge slightly in the process. :x Oh well.

Nut needs filing and I'm wiring it up today, then we'll see how the stock PUPs sound. Then down the line I may get an Iceman truss rod cover, chrome PUP covers, etc depending on how I feel. But for now, I'm stoked.

Congrats PJ, that looks great! Electronics can always be upgraded- but I'm anxious to hear your thoughts on the playability of the kit- must be pretty decent if you were willing to invest in the finish job?

Thanks everyone.

Truthfully, when it arrived, I thought the color looked darker than I was expecting, but it's one of those colors where lighting has everything to do with it.

I'll write up a full review about the kit and the overall end result once I get everything in place and operating.
