Omg this is a beautiful swirl, I was going to a project like this but with a Vine and Led's but I decided to save money until later. Now I want to do my project again!!!

Pretty got guitar. I've never understood pickguards on back routed guitars (and I've never understood why some guitars are still front routed) but it's still pretty hot.

The pickguard still protects the paint. Plus it looks cool IMO. And clear guards would look crap with the routing showing through it.
Also this guitar is sexy! 1 question though, what is the stuff in the lions claw? It looks like dust, or is it just the paint?

The damage a nylon/plastic pick will do to a high quality polyester finish is negligible. Even a Urethane finsh will hold up to pick abuse. The old nitro finishes, not so much. None of my urethane finished guitars have any pick scratches. And the polyester finished one definitely doesn't.

It wont leave scratches but it can leave marks on there. Plus some people just like the look of the clear guard. Me for one.

was thinking the same, looks a bit out of place, love the led's though.

Aside from the LEDs that looks great. I always thought the GMC was the nicest swirl and possibly the nicest Vai signature Ibanez ever put out.
