    Multiverse is such an awesome name for this. The backplate pyramid scene is awesome as well.

    My jaw literally dropped when I saw this, holy shit :yesway:

    Could we have the specs? I'm guessing a 2228 neck, and maybe a massively retooled 2228 body. I'm interested in the single coil. And the trem. And everything on it. Also, let me know when you wanna part ways with it ;)

    EDIT: Looks like an RGA8 neck, due to the wood grain and apparent lack of a volute.

    Wow, great job man.... dibs if you ever sell it (ya right!)

    Seriously though, this is fantastic, The DNA jems have always been some of my favorite guitars, its awesome to see that concept taken to the extreme as an 8 string!

    it's and RGA8 neck, with 2228 radius (ebony) fingerboard? actually it is a compound radius 10-14. The body is a mahogany body custom made with the 2228 profile but with RGA8 neck pocket.
    Single coil is an ex BKP cold sweat that was taken apart for the bobbin and then hand wound by Brett at Guitar Logistics
    Trem was 2 OFR's that were welded powder coated, with a new machined trem block, FU hight tension springs with gotoh black boxes, custom 6 position spring claw (brass) chromed and laser etched with mirror back insert
    pickups are BKP (bridge) aftermath, (mid) custom, (neck) BKP cold sweat
    it has an EMG PA2 and EMG SPC
    cover plates by pickguard paradise, with custom graphic (by me) laser etched with swarovski crystal inserts....
    that's pretty much it.... oh and swirl by Alan at Out of This Swirled, cleared by Guitar Guru

    The aperture settings on some of those pix are atrocious. HAD TO GRIPE.

    Now, that's the first guitar I've seen that's had such vivid colors that it's actually hurt my eyes looking at it, I must play this.
