NGD - Mirror Edition

So I will say that I already have a gorgeous Black LP Custom. So that allowed me to purchase - or give myself a birthday Black LP Traditional, that was transformed to 'Discotheque' - a U2 inspired build. Before and After below...

After

That is really cool. It brings me back to Paul Stanley's mirror Iceman. I saw KISS live when he had it and they shined the light on it and he radiated the whole arena.

Thumbs up for the handywork, but definitely not my cup of tea. As long as it creams your Twinkie, you're golden.

Very cool. One day I want to do that with an old RG body.

I like how everything is in rows and all neat. I ahve seen some that were more a jumble of pieces but this is definitely better. Love it!

Likey. Have you re-bound it or added extra binding ?

Re: NGD - Mirror Edition

that is about half of the original binding that was left on it - the guy who made it for me was working off a picture I provided....he is impressively close, and the guitar sounds to me as good as it did without all the mirrors on it...

It's a little nerve wreckingly fragile, a lot of potential mirrors to crack for bad luck

Awesome job your friend did there!
