Man! That's gorgeous! (But I'd take a 10th over it anyday, sorry!)

I actually wondered about that combination (a blue multi) a long time ago, after seeing my first GMCs.

So, now the questions:

1: How many shades are in that swirl?

and

2: What shades would those be? It looks like white, black and various blue shades in between. More details, please!

Thanks for all the great comments guys!

Close up pics will appear next week when I am back in England. I land in London next week 8th Jan.

Cost break down will also be posted then when I can check properly at home!

The Converse are standard "Chuck Taylor's" (bought in Boston btw) that I painted myself with a design borrowed from EVH!
BTW his also have a couple of black lines as well as the white.

Swirl details
White is the base coat that the swirl goes on.
I asked Darren for (and sent him the colours):
Very dark blue
Medium darkness blue
Another blue
Pastel very light blue

no black!

I think Darren may have added another so there are five blues in there.

The guitar has no serial number (natch) and I forgot to mention the hardware is cosmo black (new from Ibanez UK).

Who is Jeff Spicoli?

Thanks again for the great comments everybody

Did I mention the body is mahogany?

best wishes and happy new year

Simon in Oz

Rent "Fast Times at Ridgemont High", an 80's teen-type summer flick. Jeff Spicoli is the penultimate surfer/burnout - played by Sean Penn.

"All I need is a tasty buzz and some righteous waves" ... And my JEM!

Congrats on the new axe, mate !

And happy new year, I hope the hangover is not too serious : repeat after me : EADGBE. I hope you still can play !

I have to say that I'm quite impressed by this swirl, definitely one of the nicest I've ever seen... (and yes, the shoes are impressive too !)

If you have a little time, go and check the "other guitars" forum, I have a new baby too ! I hope we'll meet again soon, so that we can see the guitars "in the flesh" (one of the expressions I've learned at Jemfest UK...)

See you soon, and have a nice trip back ! (and please, don't let them put this guitar far from you during the flight !!!)
