New GMC project body I got from SCS... suh-weet!

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 front...

The back...

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.....

It's definitely a "busy" swirl! I'd call it the "Goblin swirl" as I see many faces in those top two shots Can you see them???

Make sure to post pics of the completed project!!!

Congrats, stringer, and "Tick Tock Tick Tock"

Great swirl! I saw that on the bay as well, I'm sure glad someone took advantage of it. Please post pics when completed!

...soooo happy...

Thanks for the kind words- I lucked out on this one. Went to pick up some cables & stuff from GtrCntr and took the body in to show people what a real guitar looks like (well, at least from the neck joint down ). You think the guitar is green? You shoulda seen the folks at GC !

Yes, the cats are quite a pair- there's the one in the middle of the shot (Zach) and if you look right by his...er...tail, you can see a puff of curled up pomposity (Chloe). They have this "love-hate" relationship... actually, it's more of a "love-hate-I'm gonna rip your f*&^%*g head off and s%&t down your throat" kind of relationship .

Can't wait 'til this beauty gets all put together- time is a cruel mistress...

Come on you guys........none of you sees the faces????

Alright...I'll give ya'll a hint.

In this top (front pic) It looks like the goblin is actually sniffing for the bridge pup that is not there yet You can see his nose, eyes, mouth and teeth quite plainly....v.......


In this second (back pic) there is a Zelda looking dude coming up out of the bottom in the same general area.




Come on folks! How could you not see these images???

I can see them and I don't even particularly like the Greatful Dead
