I loved the Warlock-ish look of the body and really wanted to put a different look to aura of it. I got the grain idea from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake movie poster... It looks like it was rubbed with charcoal or part of a burned up plank. I used True Black stain and wet sanded it once. Then put teak oil on it... I kept everything else stock and it sounds like it looks. Heavy and distorted!!! Can't wait for the next build!!
