My 3rd Swirl Project - Complete

O.k. so I've had this body from Perle for quite sometime. I got it from him on a deal, and this being my third swirl, wanted something different. So I went with a "Core of the Earth" swirl. Basically the RG520 that I snagged two weeks ago, met it's fate and became a donor for this project. I mulled over keeping it as a 520, but the pull was just to great to finally complete this project. So aside from wiring it up, which I'll do tomorrow(give me something to do in between stuffing my face with turkey) the project is complete. And here she is:







and here's one with the rest of the Ibanez family -

I didn't swirl it(wish I had the skill and the know how to do it). It's a guitar done by Nate Perle. This is my 3rd guitar of his that I've done projects on. I've got a Passion and Warfare colored swirl and a DNA style swirl. Have to say this one is my favorite so far. Just love the brightness of it. Since I just finished it up tonight, I'll take some pics of it tomorrow in the sunlight....

Re: My 3rd Swirl Project - Complete

Thanks guys, just got it wired up tonight. Did a volume mod(with capacitor + resistor) and wired it's 50's(i.e. Les Paul)with a Mojo capacitor and good grief did it change the dynamics of the V7/V8 combo. Wasn't expecting such a change in tonality. Really I'm impressed with the tone of the V7/V8's. Honestly, I'm not a fan of the V series pups from Ibanez and I'll be the first to change them out. But I think I'll leave these in for awhile and see how they grow on me. From the first initial playing I did tonight with this sort of wiring setup I'm really digging them. So chances are they will stay. I'm shocked and stunned that I'll be leaving stock Ibanez V series pups in.
