cool Vic's new toy...

Well, after almost two years of waiting, a custom guitar I ordered has finally been delivered from GMW Guitarworks in the States. They do killer work and when I had the chance I put an order in for one.

For the guitar initiated, the specs are: Alder Dinky/SD1 body, Advanced Red Ghost Flames graphic, 24 fret birdseye maple neck with ebony sharkfin inlays, reverse Jackson style headstock, black neck and headstock binding, gold Floyd (non-recessed) and hardware, Seymour Duncan Custom 5 pickup.

I need to get it outside into the sunlight, but here are the pics I took of it tonight.

Re: Vic's new toy...

ooooo very nice indeed! How do you rate the pickup, and any reason you only went for a sigl configuration?

What' the weight like? If it's alder it shouldnt be too bad?

Hubba Hubba! I've never been a fan of gold fittings on guitars (gibsons excepted) but that looks absolutely horn! Hope it plays as nice as it looks! Bet your hip pocket's hurting!
