    Hey guys,
    So the wonderful guys at Jackson actually made a twin of my first custom shop guitar (http://www.sevenstring.org/forum/se...kson-custom-shop-7-string-56k-arrow-knee.html) just in case something went wrong.

    Since that guitar came out great, they asked if there was anything i wanted tweaked, since they could just do it to the twin and send that to me.
    The body on the first one was really thick, which led to the guitar sounding huge, but the heel was enormous on it, so i asked if they could make this body thinner and cut the heel down as well for better access, which they did. I also told them to do a blue sparkle finish, but apart from that to keep everything else EXACTLY the same.

    The guitar's finish came out incredible, but it is really hard to get a good shot of it with the color coming out accurately, i took indoor and outdoor shots to try to get the best light possible (but we are on tour, and the indoor venue lighting wasn't good and it was raining outside) so these were the best i could do. Enjoy!

    Here are the outdoor shots, the color is a bit different in that light, but the sparkle looks thinner than actually is.

    When do they make you a signature model that we can all buy and kick Broderick out for the ugly model?

    Can you start endorsing Jackson and get them to make this a sig? God damn that's gorgeous! Granted, I prefer the body on the other one but I wouldn't really care as long as something similar to either one got onto the market.
