Just picked this up from a buddy of mine. It started life as an Ibby MBM1. So basically an all mahogany RGA with binding, EMG's and black paint with a ******ed graphic. It was sent off to Marty Bell for a truly ridiculous refinish in amazing orange sparkle. This finish is so deep and sparkly in real life that it's almost unbelievable. It also had the stock EMG's swapped for the awesome EMG Het Set. This guitar is flawless and plays and sounds beastly. It is set up in Drop C and the Het Set is tight and huge sounding. This is the second guitar I have that set in and even though I have been an EMG hater for years it has become one of my favorite pickup sets. The guitar plays great. It is technically a prestige signature model so quality wise it is between a normal prestige and J Custom. Same level as Jems and UV's, etc. Really well built and great playing guitar. Now it looks as good as it plays and sounds.

Wow, I can see in the refections how nice a finish it has. What does it cost to have that done?
Pretty extravagant, but I like it.
#25
My buddy that I bought it from had it refinished. I think Marty charges around $400 for a finish like this. But it's total factory quality.

That is f'ing amazing. I wish I could do this to my 1570, it's got the flat black finish which is super boring.
