One more....



This is a take off on a prototype done for Vai. It never went into production.

The finished guitar will have my favorite maple neck, from a 550 I believe. I have the Breeds already. I wanted zebra Orange/Black pickups but Dimarzio doesn't make orange anymore. Time to call Roger and get some covers...

The body was originally is Maple from Ibanez. I guess it was a custom that went bad (there were some bad spots in the body) and they painted it black. When I stripped it I couldn''t believe what I saw. I have had the body for 10+ years. It is the best sounding body I own.

Can't wait to get it all together.

That's exacly the swirl that I would get if I got Darren to do some work for me. *I was gonna call it Halloween or something. *Killer colors. *I like the color choice.
Gnarly guitar man. *The perfect compliment would be an orange inlay in a rosewood/ebony fretboard.

Here's two more that Darren just finished swirling.



and



The 49ers one on top is using true metalic gold and it looks stunning.

He is trying to get the turn time seriously reduced. He is really making a commitment to his clientele.

Heres some more for ya, how about some "RACK O' DNA" ----

Just to clarify. The Purple/Green and the 49ers colors are other peoples that Darren finished. I wish they were all mine, but alas.....
