    Just wanted to try and show off a bit...

    [​IMG]

    I was able to make a vinyl graphic from an Illustrator file and place it on my black Ibanez for what I consider to be pretty neat results -- then I wanted to share with you all (I lurk here for the most part, enjoying the wonderful hobby as a spectator).

    Thanks for looking,

    Thanks guys...

    Hey Qui -- it's an RG470 so for an Ibeenhad it's actually a decent player (very Jackson-esque) -- my other dog however is a Charvel/Jackson Mdl 3 :) (with an eyeball sticker I stole from a Dr's office mag -- I believe it was an ad for Cooper Mini's).

    Yodaman -- stock (d'oh). But they're not bad.

    Nice :) I love to see guitars with some sort of artwork on them.I would do anything for the Budweiser one that Chris Holmes used whilst playing in W.A.S.P.

    I myself have owned 2 Ibanezs,an RG-270 which was a little crap but good for messing about ;),by far and away the best guitar i have ever owned or played was a Jem,complete with Evolution pickups.They have to be the best i have ever heard,apart from some various vintage guitar pickups.

    hey there bud, i have a 54 les paul a PRS and several other guitars/instruments...

    my favorite that has the most killer sound be it rip your head off and poo down your neck, or plunky funky bright jazzy clean...

    original issue ibanez universe. :love

    if you havent played one through a mesa rectifier... you havent lived as a guitarist.

    anyway...

    LOVE the graffic.

    any way i could get one?

    ive got a guitar id love to have it on.

    or a fett or trooper would rule too...

    see you can make this prop for us and not be a spectator. ;)

    nudge nudge wink wink say no more say no more. ;) ;)

    If I had a guitar I would want it to look exactly like that.

    I'm going to try and simplify the graphic a tad -- too many fine lines and points, since all of the negitive space is empty it's real hard to get peeled correctly and I'm not too sure how durable it will be. But I'll fix it, so's I can keep it. :D
