jackson jdr94 refinished

jackson jdr94
my first electric guitar that had be ruined ...
spent a year to finish this project. not the best and turned out not as what i expected. well .. 
this is a used japanese made jackson guitar mom paid for me when i was in gr. 10. it used to be black, with rosewood board and black hardwares. a good friend of mine brian (gm4s) kindly gave me his original floydrose bridge and a seymour duncan pickup. sometimes after, i got a x-japan sticker on it ... as i grew older and got funky-er, i've decided to give some changes in 07', and took a year to repaint the body.
