    Scored this a week or two back. Custom RG body with the obvious Jem additions. MIJ RG neck, rosewood board with Pyramid Inlays. Edge Pro Bridge and EMG 81. Nice swirl job on this...unfortunately I have no clue who did it but could find out I guess. My crappy camera can't capture how vivid the colours are in person, really vibrant, the orange is much more red in person and that EMG bucker is actually green...lol!!! A great sounding guitar, always liked the '81. If I can find a decent price Lo Pro Edge I'm gonna swap that Edge Pro out for it. Overall very happy with this one. As always thanks for looking!!

    Hell of a swirl indeed, Congratulations once more :)
    The green PU cover isn't a bad idea, maybe more neon though ?

    That's a great swirl, and I dig the 1 Hum/1 knob configuration.

    @77zark77 Cheers man!! Def needs more neon on that humbucker. I'd have a put a pink/green Evo in there...might do yet...not as easy as it sounds though...I think the Di Marzio needs doctored to fit in an EMG sized rout.

    @mlp187 @shadowlife Thanks so much guys...appreciate the feedback as always!

    Nice!

    But yeah, aesthetically, IMO, it needs a neon green dimarzio.

    The green EMG is a nice touch.

    EDIT: Agreed, a Dimarzio would work too.

    Another cool guitar mate, I love it. The Lo Pro and the Green Evo will be really cool changes. The swirl is very similar to ones I remember Out of this Swirled in the UK used to do and with the quality of that swirl it might well be one of theres. Shame OotS closed up (medical reasons I think) their paint jobs were amazing

    Cheers man! Yeah I was always an admirer of the OOTS stuff, did some amazing work and a real shame that he had to
    stop working.
