A GMC Universe that now exists!!

I think this should interest many Universe and Jem players.
The Jem 77GMC was always a favorite of mine......why not a GMC 7 sting.
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?

That's actually quite nice, and I'm not big on vines or swirls.

Re: A GMC Universe that now exists!!

Looks really good (I am a fan of swirls!) - you must be really happy with it.

Have you just had it back from Herc? - I'm still waiting for my guitar back from him :-(

Nice looking guitar that - I'd like to see a better (lighter) pic of the front aswell if you've got one.

Beautiful, i love the vine.

Is it just the photo or is the green a little dark?

It'd love a completely blinding neon green if i wanted a GMC swirl

Re: A GMC Universe that now exists!!

It looks nice, I just don't like herc swirls, never have really. Nice custom though, is this one of the long lost jobs herc was trying to get finished, or is he doing custom stuff again?

Re: A GMC Universe that now exists!!

I like it....

It's one of those things that make you go......oh! GMC.....and then you notice the 7 tuners and think....hmmmmm, that's odd. And then it registers and you go.........cool!!!

Very nice custom.
