Just got my first project body- gmc swirled 570- from Patrick (SCS) and I am sooooo excited!! It's going to be my main player guitar (can't seem to bring myself to take the '03 77fp out to band practice and I'm still paying off my 7dbk- can anyone say GAS?) once I get all the innards hooked up and receive the neck from ET (plans look awesome- pics to follow).
I just love the swirl- it looks like you could just stick your hand right in it, it's that slick. The finish (and I realize how controversial a topic this can be
) is like glass- makes you want to break out the ice skates and go for a twirl
So excited... and now, the pics (sorry for the poor quality- cheap camera and bad photographer
The finish on the top (and my feline owners...)
The finish on the back (cats let me take one more before sending me back to my cage)
Better (well, bigger at any rate) pics can be seen here:
Am I happy? Oh, heck yeah!! This thing is gorgeous- the detail (which is hard for my lil' camera to capture accurately) is entrancing. The way the swirl seems to keep moving when you stare at it...
Got the innards (green Evolutions, green knobs, Ibanez backplate, etc.) from Patrick (muchas gracias, bro), so all I need is the trem I got from evilbay and the neck from ET (maple w/ebony fretboard, green mirror leaves on a silver vine) and she'll be complete.
Big ole tick-tock.....
