Hi all,
Okay, I'm in the middle of a load of projects at the moment, and I thought it was about time I shared a few pics of them, so here's one (other threads in other parts of the forum).

http://uk.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/[email protected]/album?.dir=/c1e5

This is a RG7620 body that I bought off e-bay, then I built the neck from scratch (with a 6 string vine board bought off e-bay, which I then widened using binding to make it 7 string). Then swirled the body and headstock with black/white/purple/red. This one is definitely a keeper I think - I'm gonna put Blaze's in it - should be nice! It's been cleared but not polished, so the finish is not perfect yet (will be done soon) - there's also some major reflections in some pics - please ignore them!!

cheers,

Rich

Very cool. I've just seen you're other thread about your GMC.

I guess you've got the Swirling Bug, as far as I know there is no known cure. What's your next project ... :)

based on your results, maybe you should start taking on paid work for jemsiters. maybe you already do.

that looks awesome, and has inspired me to do my own actually, but having never done it before and only read a quick tutorial it seems a little daunting.

what base did you use for that swirl?

i'm planning on buying a 7321 and i would like to attempt a red on black or something equally as "simple" and then put red knobs on and red pickup bobbin covers. etc.

I think this particular guitar would look alot better with chrome hardware. If youve got black you could always post a trade for a different color here on the forum.

I assume you mean what base colour did I use, in which case it was a white base coat. And thanks everyone for the compliments, I haven't got around to polishing it and re-assembling yet - probably get done next week hopefully.

yes i did mean base coat, thanks for that :)

if i was planning to do a plain red/black swirl, i am guessing the only way to do this is to have a black base coat and then swirl with plain red?

thanks again.
