Congrats to ahull123 for winning the vote for MG's latest Featured Guitar with his absolutely jaw-dropping custom Ibanez 8 string that was four years in the making and dubbed the "Multiverse". There is an unbelievable amount of detail, creativity and customization on this amazing one of a kind guitar. Some basic specs are below, but to really appreciate the amount of work that went into this please check out the build threads linked after the pictures!
