    Jackson nailed it!
    I have lots of detail requests such as massive dark blood red on venilla shake finish, black sharkfin inlay on ebony board, no trussrod cover and backplate, big brass FR block, luminlay and soloist neck thickness. They delivered all of them.
    The only mistake is that the cs logo should be on the back of the headstock.
    And the COA is a nice touch!

    I am very happy about the final result!

    Enjoy the pics!

    I'm so jealous of this I don't even wanna like it. This is phenomenal. Vanilla shake was such a good call too rather than a whiter background.

    The paint guys at Jackson must love it when these kinds of requests come in! You can see he really listened to the spec -- the blood is darker and more realistic than the usual types of these finishes.

    I've never been one for blood splatter jobs but the rest of the specs kick ass. I like the old style bridge posts.

    I love the really subtle, black-on-ebony sharkfin inlays. Such a great idea, a combo I'd never even considered!

    Nice! Even painted the pickup as well. I was just wondering if black inlays on ebony was even an option, now I know. Are they hard to see?

    wow...that looks awesome.

    i like how they painted the blood in different shades to make it realistic. this makes my dj-600 look fake lol.

    good call on the off-white finish too...helps pull off the splatter

    Not for live situation, but for home playing you can clearly see them.

    I just saw Pat O Brien's new Jackson which has the black inlays on ebony as well. Subtle and cool

    Gorgeous guitar! I'm currently chasing my first CS and I'm very fearful that I may not want anything else after this.

    I also like how if you're playing the guitar and looking down at it, the blood would be dripping down the guitar and onto the floor. Really nice touch.
