My New Universe - Kinda....

Here are a couple of pictures of my UV7BK. hehehehe
I've been playing around for the last few months at turning it into a UV777DY. This is what it looks like to date. :-)





I hope these pics aren't too big.
Anyways... in the fall I hope to have a flamed maple fretboard and pyramid inlays added to it. I did a quicky paint job on it because I realized it was going to be a while till I had the money to do all I wanted to to it. I hope you like it. A little sacreligious, I suppose. But I have too many black guitars(fingerprints) and the DY is my fav. :-)
Peace!

Alden : )

Thanks guys!!! :-)
I actually painted the pups with the same type paint I used to paint the body, with the help of a little something to help it stick better. hehe I've been playing for a week or so and the paint seems to be staying put on them. **crosses fingers* LOL
Thanks again!

I'd bet vinyl dye (available at any car parts store) would work perfectly on pickups.

I can only pray that Patrick see's this thread, after the comments you guys made about my recording habits!!!!! *that was WAY more than I needed to know dude, if you have to use that for my pickups, don't tell me!

That is about the best looking universe I've ever seen. Will look even better with a maple fretboard. Way to go Alden! :thumbsup:

That looks awesome!
The green fretboard dots looks really good with the new paint.

I was able to read a little of your post before the pics were loaded and I found myself cringing. *But to my surprise, your guitar is awesome looking. *That model UV just cries for help anyway and you have done something that I haven't seen anyone do before, great job. *A maple board would look schweeet. *Hit up Jeremy for fitting that maple board on there.

Beauty! *Are you going to do the same color scheme on the pyramids as the JEM DY? Very nice!

I agree to go down to the local music store and scare the crap outta them kidz! I brought a pink JEM in to the local shop a few weeks back and almost killed a few of 'em!
