My loving and gracious wife bought me a silver dot UV7BK for my birthday and sent it off to Herc to be swirled in a PAW color scheme. Of course, I'm eternally grateful to her! The body isn't back yet but I'm thinking that those silver dots are going to have to go. I already have two Uni's with pyramids (WH and BK) so I'm leaning toward not getting the original MC pyramids on it. I started thinking having a guitar with a vine would be mighty sweet. So here are the results of my last three hours of playing around in a photo editor:
Idea 1 which I really like if the guitar has a lot of yellow:
Idea 2 is what I like probably if the guitar doesn't have much yellow:
Idea 3 don't much like the pink stem:
Idea 4 once again, don't dig the pink stem:
Idea 5 might be cool on an overly pink guitar, but I don't dig the pink leaves as much:
Idea 6 again, the big pink leaves don't appeal to me unless it's an SK or such:
Any opinions on any of these? My idea is to get the guitar a bit more Jem looking. I don't own a Jem. I got my first UV less than a year after starting to play guitar (got it in '91). After all this time, 6 strings don't really appeal to me. So, I wanted to make this custom UVMC more of a Jem in it's visual styling cues. Herc did a monkey grip for me. Once I get to add the vines and colored pickups and trim pieces I'm thinking it should be pretty schweet.
