Default Nightswan project

This one has been done for a while now but I never got around to posting pics. The body was done by South East Guitars and Vinnie did the paint. My camera just does not do the color justice this thing is just beautiful. As usual Vinnie did an awesome job. Thanks to Vinnie and South East Guitars.

Very nice John, I love that kandy burgandy color. I've got the exact same color on one of my Nightswans.

I think I will stop at 10. Just sounds like a good number to me.

There you go, a nice round number.
As long as you can stop, you don't have a problem.

Like John said 10 sounds like a good number. I'm only at 3 right now so maybe I need to sell off my remaining 6 Barettas to get there.

Well, claw necks do not either. Ebony fingerboards are the next best thing to mapleboard necks IMO. Warmoth makes some nice aftermarket Nightswan mapleboard necks just in the wrong scale.

Thanks. It is actually candy Burgundy. My camera just can't pick up the color right.
