Sims custom 7 string swirl

KInd of a cross between a universe and jem. Paint scheme is based
off of Ranz's red/pink swirl Patrick did for him a little while back.
Sorry for the crappy image quality, as I had to enlarge the pictures
with GIMP on Linux. Going with pink and green pup configuration.
Not sure which Dimarzio's I want in it yet, so I'm up for any suggestions.
The body is made of alder, because
I wanted a brighter sounding wood and have way too many guitars made
of basswood. RG7420 neck is going on the body, and the headstock has already been
painted jet black with a neon green decal. Additionally, cosmo black
hardware and green switch/knobs.
Should be at my house in about 3-4 weeks.

That's exactly what Patrick says it looks like. It will
go well with my lemon & lime RG760, um.... I'll take pictures
of them together once it arrives at my house and is assembled.
