NGD - Universe project finally finished

Big thanks goes to usual suspects - Rich for electronics & stuff and Alan from OOTS for body.
All other stuff came from evilbay. Pickups are Blaze with B.Custom in bridge position. Action is ridiculously low, lovin' it! Someday i will put UVMC neck on this one

Great axe, but in IMO, white suits her better ^^

Nice guitar, but I agree with Soisim that the white looked better.

But doesn't matter what we think haha I would still rock it \m/

Hey I remember that body!

If it had been down my unit a few days longer it would have not been black now! lol

I much prefer the gloss black over white primer any day, nice one glad I could help out.

You did just that Alan, thanks a lot mate! As far as color combination go... yellow pickups/green knobs on white body is the worst thing i can imagine You can never go wrong with black!

I also agree because, the white on the head stock and white on the body did not mesh well...It could have been matched I imagine but I think the black is a nice twist, and makes the guitar as a whole stand out. Especially, with the pickup and knob color config...Nice Job!!
