INSANE MOD: Rg7420 turned into UV77MC (PAW swirl) Lotz of pics ;)

Hey everyone.
That's it: a girly, (friend of mine and Jemsiter) asked me to TRANSFORM an standard RG7420 Magenta Crush into a RGVERSE
Yep, a UV77MC replica.
I did the swirl myself.
My friend, luthier Adão Ribeiro from São Paulo - Brazil, did the amazing desapearing pyramid inlays.
So, this is what it was:


Standard RG7420 Magenta Crush (w/ some dings).
The pus are: SDInvader7 and V8-7 with green bobbintoppers.



The colored pyramid pieces



The 7420 neck with new board and desapearing pyramid inlays



Then the body was stripped and received prep for the swirl!

Yeah, that was the goal:
making it blacky ATD style, not those washed MKR.
Thanx

Very nice job on picking the colors, IMO ---- some colors in swirls I've seen don't really seem to go together and/or be too over the top (possible?)

Also like the clear pg & cavity covers
