RG-GEMSTONE - What do you guys think?

This is my latest project in its first stage completed...

I am just about to redo the headstock in a JEM90HAM type finish as well as the rest of the body..... it really needs to be seen in life to get the full effect....

That is really cool! Imagine being on stage with a guitar like that! What type of gems are those?

Nice.

Coooooool in a very Elvis sort of way :biggrin:

I'd like to know what's under all those shiny stones, and also whether the F3 pickup is as good as I've heard?

Looks very cool, but also looks very painful. *Doesn't your right arm get all scratched up from the stones?

I don't know about the F3, but I have an F4 that kicks some boootay.

That's awesome. You should send a picture of that to Paul Stanley, to show him what he's missing.
