Explorer Refin- Stike!!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Some time ago I picked up one if those cherry Gibson Explorers locally (pretty cheap) and thought... This would be a great guitar for a refinish.  So, after doing my research, I learned that if you want metal flake, the best on the planet was Stike.  Without much direction, I told him to have at it.  I'm floored!  Could. Not. Be. Happier! Got a few pics this week and it was shipped today.  What an artist!!

Wasn't expecting that!  Phenomenal.  Burst, metalflake sparkle and a graphic?  Insane.  Thanks for posting this!

It’s a shame Stike is US based. I have Blitz bass that’s seeking color.

Fantastic design and color. The back side is fantastic too.

Over the top. 

Over the back. 

Over the sides. 

It is cool all over.

Joe, was that design your idea? Stike did an amazing job! That looks just incredible. It's without a doubt one of the coolest finishes I've ever seen. LOVE IT.

Joe mentioned that he once was neighbors with Ed "Big Daddy" Roth and told me do whatever. I don't think Ed ever had any of his show cars with that type of design but I was trying to keep a 60's SoCal hotrod vibe. I wish that pickguard wasn't there.
