Neon Guitar

Not sure if this picture uploaded or not but i wanted to share a work in progress. All the art is symbolic and meant to have a kind of "sketched" look. I've been having a lot of fun with it. It is an RG270, but i have made serious mods. It has a LoPro Edge, Tone Zone(neck), Evolution(bridge), aftermarket pickguard(the rg270 did not originally have a pickguard equipped), a backstop(for those that dont know it helps stabilize floating tremolos) and I outfitted it with a deep socket mono jack. So far it sounds really great and looks really cool under the blacklight. i plan to redo the dots with the JEM vine in neon green, with neon blue leaves(really cool effect for the black light). eventually i will smooth everything out and enhance the artwork. i was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or criticism on it? feel free to speak your mind, im not easily offended. thanks for looking

Okay...While it doesn't strike me as something I might play, it is a one of a kind artsy fartsy piece. Looks a little too much like a young punk rocker decided to paint a guitar though...Definitely has that I don't give a [email protected]$k attitude. Which is not always a bad thing...

I have always been a fan of doing your own thing and letting your freaky flag fly high. I personally do that, just in a different way! So for that I give 2 thumbs up! The fact that it is an individualistic thing also makes me approve...Not that you need my approval for anything.

I'll bet it looks quite cool on stage under lights, and rocking out...Which would appear to be why you put it together...

Anything you do that you love, is the right thing for you to do!!

Re: Neon Guitar

I like it, but to me, the neon trem is overkill

Re: Neon Guitar

That looks pretty cool. Usually I don't like those kind of things, but that is very nice.

Re: Neon Guitar

It glows brilliant under a blacklight but it doesnt glow in the dark. @beborock yes i was hesitant about the trem and still not sure about it myself... kinda test running it for now. @deadtunes now that you say that i see it too lol it doesnt have quite the feel i want it too yet. most of the inspiration was actually pink floyd inspired
@daniel & muffin thanks
