Re: A GMC Universe that now exists!!

Thanks! Without stealing the thread, that's Herc Fede's work.

Herc style, IMO.
I just said that UV GMC has that swirled front cover under clear, not the actual clear pickguard swirled.
And it's great!

Re: A GMC Universe that now exists!!

So can you remove those inserts without hurting the finish? Like to change the pots?

Re: A GMC Universe that now exists!!

On my guitar there are no inserts, and changing pots are no problem. I believe the inserts used with clear pickguards also are easy to remove. How else would they manage to assemble the guitar after swirling?

Euphor, Nice! Great colors.
I think a BFB UV would be cool or even a FP.

Re: A GMC Universe that now exists!!

I'm thinking on doing some UVMC replica.
It's gonna be dna or pmc swirl mixed with paw swirl, grip and claw, Edge Pro in cosmo (from RG1527), maple neck AND scale, desapearing pyramids, 25 (25) frets just like PGM10th, full scallop, set-neck or neck-thru, matching swirled headstock, Brazilian mahog body, green Evo at bridge and green Blaze neck w/o single= H H config.
Well, after describing it, i think it's a total custom work, not a replica of anything!
Lets see what happens.
Tubarão.

Can't be done? I did. And I want to share it with you Universe/Jem lovers.

Herc Fede customized my UV7BK into a GMC Universe exactly like a Jem77GMC!

This 7 string UV7 now has a lions claw routered behind the tremolo, a handle grip, green swirl paint custom painting, a custom vine inlay, clear plastic pickguard, and I found newly painted screws, covers etc.
It looks fantastic.
What do you think?
Very Fantastic!!!
Can you say me who can paint my guitar like yours but yellow and black?
