    Damn, dude! You nailed that swirl out of the park! AWESOME!!!!!!

    I’ve made a couple shitty attempts at swirling but couldn’t find the right Humbrol paint. I snagged an RG470 for $60 a while back with the intent being to turn it into a GMC and this thread is certainly pushing me to get it done faster.

    Damn, man. That’s seriously on par with an ATD swirl. Tight fucking work!!!!

    Many thanks for your words :)

    I made a PIA PMC attempt just for fun while waiting for the UVMC neck, and IMHO it came out a bit better than the UV.
    The world needs more swirls, more vibe and more energy these days. Best of luck on your GMC project and show us it when its finished.

    Cheers,
    H.

    This is awesome. I hate to say this... but you will notice it at some point. Your inlay guy is a horrible amateur. The 7th and 5th fret inlays have been swapped around.

    I want an MC so bad. Every time I forget about my lust for one then someone posts something like this and it ruins my life. Hahaha.

    Amazing work.

    Wow that's amazing!

    How long did it take for you to get the body from Christopher woods?

    I remember a while ago that it was difficult to get the things people ordered.

    Yeah, I don't know if @Webmaestro ever got his RG1527 neck back or the custom neck he paid to have built.

    So cool!
    Congrats on your guitar and your son (which has my same name)
    The Gabriels like their Ibanez

    Also, for everyone else, Mario from Guitar Lounge in Austria is the guy if you need Ibanez parts in Europe
