Universe finds new home

I picked up a Universe from a fellow on the JCF a few weeks ago. It came with an EMG 707 in the bridge with no other pickups wired up. In order to get the 707 in their, whoever did the work had to recut the pickguard so just popping in the correct Dimarzio wasn't going to be that simple. Nobody that I could find does the correct 3-ply pickguard (black/green/black). Just when I was about to order a black/white/black and take a marker to it, I found http://www.terrapinguitars.com. I had them make me a new pickguiard and matching trussrod cover with a graphic they offered of the Matrix lettering background. The green isn't a perfect match but I think it's pretty cool.

Thanks for the kind words. I'm very happy with the guitar.

BTW, your link isn't working.
