Purple Ice Finally Done...???

I finally got some time to work on my Purple Ice swirl (done by Andrewsfury).

I'm not set on the pickup color choices yet, but it's getting there...... unfortunately, DiMarzio won't make ANY single spaced pups in purple anymore.

Anyway, a few pics and a huge thanks to Andrewsfury for creating this swirl and another big thanks to a few of my buddies for helping me make some of the decisions that went into making this guitar......You all know who you are!!!

That's so freaking cool man...

Can't you just get purple covers for the SC's?

Looking good mate! I'm STILL waiting for the custom neck I ordered from ET for my purple ice. Been over a year now. What a waste of time & money... I'll definitely never order anything from Ernie again. :/

WOW! That is BAD-ARSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am not joking, I am spouting obscenities out loud looking at that amazing swirl job. I don't even really like the colours but that's a GREAT swirl.

Who did it and do they do work for hire?

Our own Andrewsfury did this swirl. He is an awesome guy and does awesome work. He doesn't do these en masse so probably doesnt have any laying around, but he sometimes still does them for people. You should send him a PM.

Those covers won't fit on ibanez pickups, the pole spacing is different.
The purple is much lighter and pinker too.
I bought the same covers and checked them out.
The dimarzio purple is much darker and has no pink tone to it.
I got lucky and found a used purple dimarzio for the PMC I'm working on.

That's SOOOOOO purdy!
I want one. (Hmm, RG550 refinish maybe? Naa, I like the Coral Mist. )
That does look so cool though, great job.

Looking pretty sweet, Ryc. I like that you added the clear pickguard. Nice touch.

We've talked about the pickup colors. I think you need some more color there!
