Okay, I have to chime in from lurking: that thing is crazy awesome - I bet under stage
lights the reflections blind audience members.

Kudos!

The magenta J. Custom is nice too.

Re: Is this the coolest J Custom Ever ???

ART is the best! I may be a tad biased because I have one I also like the Egypt a lot. I also like the Gear and the Time!

But I think my next guitar will be the Prestige puzzle guitar. I have always liked the way they look!

I dont think it looks cheap, I just think its a different finish on a guitar that you dont see often, where as painted or stained wood, is well, very common.....

And its a one off. thats my biggest drawcard....
Yeah Freak, I agree, it is definitely an art form. No disrespect to that. And it is done exceptionally well also. I'm just saying that maybe if I saw this one first and then they came out with the stained one, maybe I would be heralding this one. But after seeing the stained one first, this one just comes off as toyish to me.
