So the wonderful guys at Jackson actually made a twin of my first custom shop guitar (NGD: Jackson Custom Shop 7 String! (56k = Arrow in the knee) - Sevenstring.org) just in case something went wrong.
Since that guitar came out great, they asked if there was anything i wanted tweaked, since they could just do it to the twin and send that to me.
The body on the first one was really thick, which led to the guitar sounding huge, but the heel was enormous on it, so i asked if they could make this body thinner and cut the heel down as well for better access, which they did. I also told them to do a blue sparkle finish, but apart from that to keep everything else EXACTLY the same.
The guitar's finish came out incredible, but it is really hard to get a good shot of it with the color coming out accurately, i took indoor and outdoor shots to try to get the best light possible (but we are on tour, and the indoor venue lighting wasn't good and it was raining outside) so these were the best i could do. Enjoy!
Here are the outdoor shots, the color is a bit different in that light, but the sparkle looks thinner than actually is.
Oiled bolt-on Maple Neck
Birdseye Maple Fretboard
24 Stainless Steel Frets
Bareknuckle Aftermath 7 Set
Planet Waves Trim-Lok tuners
Ebony Periphery "P Logo" inlay at the 12th fret.
Luminlay Side Dots.
White binding on the Fretboard and headstock
Blue Sparkle finish on the Headstock and Body
That's fuckin' amazing. You and Nolly might as well just trade off GOTM from now on.
