Pictures of my PMC . Tell me what you think !

Hi ... i just bought this PMC and i want to know what you guys think ... is it original Swirl ? I thinks its kind off strange , ive never seen it before ... note that the volume and tone knobs arent the original ones plus the pickguard is not there , i bought it that way ... the serial is 916721 , and its hand signed by Mr.Vai on the back of the headstock ... please help me knowing if i did a good deal or if its a falsification ... thanks a lot !

As I told you in the mail I sent to you, I think its probably original. The second picture shows the screw holes for the pickguard. The missing knobs are no big deal since you can get them replaced.

There is no purple in the swirl though, wich is a little strange, may be it faded to that brown/purple colour it has in it, or may be it is the light in wich you took the picture. I m not 100% sure, but it looks original.

Very weird PMC colours...

Could it be that this is an early swirl, and therefore the colours aren't so mixed up as they are on those later ones? But no purple and no whiteish... I still think it's a great looker! Congrats on your new guitar!

Thanks a lot !

Thanks a lot for your posts guys ! As i told RCB , this guitar does not belong to me anymore . I sold it to a friend , and he asked me to post about it . It really does not have purple on it , thats one of the things that made me think it isnt an original swirl . Its really a nice looker , thanks . I will take some better pics for him than post them at the briefcase , since those 2 are in very bad resolution . Thanks for your opnions !

I think that PMC is very wierd and strange.
Seems like a hand made swirl, imho
Anyway, it has the original maple neck, original tremolo, original purple DiMarzios, so, it's a TRUE_JEM

Looks pretty damn cool to me! I like the way there's a part of the swirl following the pickselector so it looks like a kind of 'smoke' mark, can't tell you if it's original or not though, whip the neck off.
