archer Congrats on a killer deal! swirls seem to have that effect on people. In pictures most of them dont look that great but once you get your hands on one the its hard to deny how cool they really are!

LGMT WOW !!! Cool Caprille. I saw this guitar on a Add in South America E-bay i think.

Congrats man. I'm deaming with one. Maybe one day.

Gresh That is one awesome swirl on that one. I think I like it better than Bob Oakman's. Sounds like you saved about $2000 on that deal...that is insane. Congratulations man.

caprile thanks for the comments
i already have a third spring in there. it came with 08's and i use 9's. it was as easy as putting the 2 bottle caps under the trem (hat tip to mr harris), put the other spring and restring. almost no angle adjust!
the only thing is i can get the back covers, so i put the control and jack covers from my 570 for the moment.
the neck plate as you see is very very faded, i would say not only in color, but actually the universe logo is blurry in texture (if that makes any sense)..i guess that would kill resale value...but who's reselling!

ibanez otaku Unbelievable for the cash Caprile, well done! The webcam pic makes it look like a VERY faded Japanese swirl, but the others show that it's a vibrant ATD job with lots of great detail. Get another spring on that trem!

I just wanted to point out that, although the guitar has been fine after shifting climates, you may eventually notice some change. I thought my guitars didn't need adjusting either (moved from Europe to US) but then, suddenly, around two months after arriving - BZZZT! Two of my Jems bent so far back they buzzed on the open strings! It's unexplainable, as a couple of others didn't change at all. I think it takes a while for wood to adapt. All fixed now of course!

Enjoy the axe, it looks really good.
