The guitar looks great!! I'm glad to see what the wolf sticker looks like on a guitar. These stickers will save me an extra 300 that I would have spent on an inlay. What I plan to do is put a sticker on and clear coat over it when I finish my guitar. Now all I need to do is start building it. I am happy to say that I found a new place to work and that I will be getting more parts and tools for xmas.

If the sticker was good enough for Jerry it's good enough for me! Irwin was the one who took it over the top and inlayed it.

Very Cool! Hadn't seen those yet.
Might be my next ones since the first set has begun peeling in the corners

I wish I could have made it over there after fall semester that one time. I am running that recycling business now and between that and full load in computer engineering at tech an hour away well... PM me when you get a chance, if you've got time this weekend or any time soon i'd love to.

I got the Irwin Logo, wolf sticker and the fret markers (wolf) and for the price its worth it. It really looks awesome. Plying with the fret markers seems like they might peel off with some harder playing. You can feel them when you play, dunno yet how durable they are going to be, but the stickers are figgin awesome! The guy shipped really fast too!

Are you using them on your Les Paul or another guitar with really low frets? On my WGD the frets are tall enough that I don't really contact the fretboard very heavily - I don't feel the stickers at all when I play. Very cool for sure! Do you have some pics?

Not my Les Paul, she is in semi retirement now that I have completed my new one. This one is wired like rosebud too, but looks like Wolf. I will spec it out with pics tomorrow.

But to answer the question,
Yes this is a new neck through guitar I got from one of my students on trade for free lessons. It is a guitar I would best guess built in the late 70's by a company named Bell. It is an awesome guitar, a slight adjustment to the truss rod and the neck is perfect. I have now finally finished her and she is ready for pictures which I will get tonight at rehearsal, my camera is DOA so I have to use my drummers. It really came out Perfect!!

Here's mine with the Tiger, fretboard and eagle headstock inlays stickers. I think they look great on my budget Tiger. I got to emailing with the guy and he was very cool.
