one that comes to mind is the 7 string not posted here long ago, its a 7vsbl. My personal fav though is the ET GMC which was posted awhile ago, it was beatiful.

That is freekin cool as!!! What does it say on your headstock? Great swirl too!! :)
This was a custom made mahogany swirled UV body for a shredder in Arizona USA. The neck was a UV original, with fretboard replaced with Ebony and custom shell inlays. We put his name, "Eric Michael Gavel" also on the headstock in neon green script, when we refinished it. This was one of our first major projects a few years ago, and had a lot of fun with it :smile:

Yeah mate, its me!!! Cheers for the patience, its one of those things...i just like doing a job right the first time!!!
With the font, i'll just need the letter 'a' designed and the rest of the letters are in the word 'universe' so its 90% of the prob solved there!!
With the inlay...we'll you'll see ;)

The first pic was good but the added chunks taken out and the hulk pickguard killed it for me, much like the JS20th.

yeah agreed dude...ppickguard tipped it over the edge!!!!

Hows this for a sexy UV!!!!8O




I cant decide if i like it or not, On 1 hand it's cool, on the other i think there is not enough contrast, so it all kinda mingles together.

A black plate and a small black pufling around the triangle inlay it'll be Ideal for me, i may have to play in Pshop now lol

I give it a 50% likey rating, but Yea i'd have it ;)

That hulk S'plate is god awful, talk about clutter eheheh, i'll post my pwh when it's finished
