Not of this earth, alien guitars!!!

OK, I bought a couple of 540R during the last couple of years. One of them was transformed into a Donnie, the other one was kept a radius, but an alien radius... so even though its not really a JS, it's definately the guitar that the nemesis of the silver surfer would play

Here is a video of it, toghether with my other UPO (unaidentified playing object) guitar, the sparle JPM7. Enjoy:

Man, I've always loved your JPM7. If you ever decide to sell that thing, let me know.

The pics dont do any justice to them, that's why I posted the video. Even though it is in low resolution I think it gives a better idea of how they look.

Re: Not of this earth, alien guitars!!!

My apologies if this has already been answered, but where the heck did you get that done? I have a project body I'd love to do that to...

Great work.

Cheers,
Danny

Re: Not of this earth, alien guitars!!!

A custom shop in Argentina did both jobs (they builded the JPM7 and customized the beat up 540R). They also did a couple of Les Pauls I own, the Donnie Hunt replica and a great shark airbrush in 770 I own.

danielsguitars.net is their site, but it's not online for the time being.

Re: Not of this earth, alien guitars!!!

OK here it is Gilky, but I dont have any new pics of it, si this old one will have to do:



I will have this guitar refinished this year or the next. Basically repainting it with a better clearcoat, replacing the black binding with a flamed maple binding, and the f holes with new ones (cause one of them was repaired before applying the clearcoat as you can see in the pic). I ll also throw in cream pups and gold hardware.

Back on topic I will also replace the pup ring, the edge and the tuners for chromed ones in the "cosmic sparkle 540R" when I get the chromed covers for the single coil pups.

Those finishing touches make a lot of difference IMHO.

That PGM is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.
