Comicbook RG Custom

Ok i know, i should've posted this awhile ago, but here she is, and plays fantastically well ... One of the best looking guitars i've done, I went gothicy, but ended up with pearloid vwh plate :-)

Anyhoo, comments welcome

You may want to move that whammy bar half an inch to towards the strings, or this will be censored.

The back is just black, and bumpy :-)

It's art not porn, besides, it's quite literally a story :-) If anyone finds it offensive i'll remove immediately

Pickups are, Air Classic(neck) gorgeous sounding pickup, Blue Velvet (s/coil) again fabulous sounds available and bridge is a Breed and we all know how sweet they sound

Oh it doesnt have the rudey truss rod cover anymore thats on the website, The mother in law was un-impressed

Thanks for the nice comments

You do nice work Rob. I don't know if I'd take this over your 7620, but it's still a nice one!

Thanks dude, It's all due to the fact that i wanted a Jem, But could'nt afford one, so i got a rg560 and modded it myself for 1 reason, I could'nt afford to get EKG and LGM to do the work ... I really do need to personally thank them both, For help and guidance Eddie,Jeremy, Your both fantastic people and my main inspiration for continuing to mod guitars

The RG7 (i think thats what you mean Jim) Is my favorite, not perfect, but still great looking :-)

The other projects are gonna take a little longer due to the rg3120 i'm waiting on to arrive :-)

Regards

Rob

Actually it's the story of a night stalker, protecting the innocent from evil ... The lady is being protected

It's made of comicbook pages, Glued to the top, cut to shape and size and laquered over

With lots of hard work and patients ;-)
