Excellent, thanks for sharing those pics.

I love Nightswans, best guitars Kramer ever came out with IMO. I have 3 of them and still no Lightning graphics one yet.

None of those airbrushed lightning bolts looked the same. That's the cool thing about it. Who wants a sticker?

Default Me and Bo

@King V...True Bo is a awesome artist and could have done it fancy,crisp and clear but we want to stay New with it but have that vintage look to it like they did back in the day at Kramer and trust me...Me and Bo have worked on this project for 2 years.We left no stone un-turned when putting this Swanny together...Not saying it's the best LB Swan ever done but what I am say'n is compared to the Old School we done a great job on it and compared to the Gibson Proto we blew it away!

I got you , you were going for a Old School OEM type..Ok Then He Nailed it I would have preferred seeing his True Lightning, I bet it would look Major cause I know what he Can really do
