Cool! Nice looking guitar! That crushed cone in the background in pic 1 really adds a nice contrast to the reds in the swirl!

Nice clean swirl - congrats!

You need some cool inlays, but apart from that it's great.

Yeah, inlays would be cool, but i'm not sure what would look better, pyramids, vine or a mock dna glow inlay, personaly, I think the dna inlays are a bit "cheesy" considering the price of the guitar, almost looks like plain dots.

Personally I would go with a vine inlay, few seven strings get it. Although maybe you could embellish the dna inlay a little bit and make it look how you like

It looks good, but is it just me, or is the single coil crooked? something doesn't look right? or do you just have the high e string side way higher up than the other side?

Um, the front humbucker's crooked, which MAKES the single look crooked.
