Thanks Birnie.
I start the stroke at the T and end it with the top of the P then add the two vertical strokes and the rest of the last name.
Been doing that for a long time and can't even remember when I started doing it. I think it may have been when I was at
the Art Center College of Design in the early 70's. Did a lot of product design sketches back then.

Hey gang, the new case for Arjen's guitar is finally in progress at G&G Case Co. and I think it's going to be a beautiful thing.
Do stay tuned. It may be here as early as the end of next week. Will post a pic of course.

G&G case, only the best! I'll wait to see if it's all black, or he picked a colour.

Hi Guys,
Almost done with Arjen's guitar. Finishing up wiring the electronics by tomorrow and then it will be alive . . . .
Here it is with a big smile . . . . and I'll post a full shot tomorrow from the front. (minus the smile and a better background).
And Wolfi, you are right!

The guitar's smile is reminding me of the Rocky Horror Picture Show :lol:
But this guitar's a beauty! The color scheme kinda reminds me of Vinnie's Kiss makeup :3
I'm friends with Robert Fleischman and John Regan and it's really cool. You have no idea how much I freaked out when they actually became my friends. XD
*Be warned, I'll make puns whenever it fits. :lol:

Meh! Don't breathe in when eating them though! Choke to death on that sucka!

This was the one my mates and I called the "choke to death bar"!

Image

Milo is a similar malt chocolate, drink powder to Ovaltine...only it tastes 5000% better! So some wiseguy decided to make a chocolate bar out of it! It used to explode when you bit it and if you happened to breathe in at the same time....coughing fit!!


Oh! And the guitar looks awesome! :lol: :lol: :lol:

The headstock wing looks a little odd in this photo cuz I did a little Photoshop on it but it is nice in real life.
I was also hurrying to get the pic posted. Overall it's a beauty.

Thank You everyone for your comments and praise. It's too bad that the white pearl, as subtle as it is, doesn't
show up as much as I'd like it to in the photo. I guess we'll have to wait until Arjen gets it to hear his reaction.
For Arjen, Christmas in October.
Next step for me is packing it up and getting a shipping quote and for Arjen - need your address too for the quote.
Send it to tom@arizonaguitars.com.
Thanks again,
T.

And the best and most exciting part is when it arrives and the case is opened for the first time.
The next is when you play it for the first time too.

Seems we were missing an invoice for the guitar so I sent them one and copied Arjen and that was all that was needed.
I hope! Anyway, they will be forwarding the package soon if not already.

I'm not sure what just happened but we just had an INVASION!!

I do not know how to upload photos here so I made a photo folder on my fb which is public. If anybody can explain me how to upload photos, please. In this case I can post a few more when I have daylight.

https://m.facebook.com/arjena/albums/10211282494957511/

I've been waiting to obtain one of these beauties since the moment they were announced back in 2010. I was living in Shanghai, China at the time and trust me, half of Shanghai got to know Vinnie Vincent and the upcoming guitars lol.

But things went differently....but now 6 years later...finally

A BIG THANK YOU TO MR TOM PALECKI FOR MAKING THIS HAPPEN. A TRUE PIECE OF ART. A BIG BOW TO YOU, TOM :)))))

Arjen,
there's a website that I use that with change a photo into a code that will open up in a forum.
It's called imgur. The site is http://www.imgur.com
So you just drop your photo onto a page labeled drop it here and then you can pick how you
want to get it into code and they have some choices to choose from. You'd want the one for
forums.
You can also start a scrap book there to save all of your photos for future reference or use.
Tom
PS: You can also look at other scrapbooks. I'll have to get my info to send you so you can see some
other things I've worked on.

For Arjen and anyone else:
By the time I was done with the finish, there are 12 coats of clear on that guitar.
I usually put on 3 + but this one just cried out for more and it's very happy as it is.
