Nice. IIRC, Daron's was painted by his father, an Armenian painter, who also painted the covers for Hypnotize/Merzmerize.

As a SOAD fan, and a fan of Daron's playing (who knew, a fusion fan who likes soad ) AND a fan of that guitar, I'm very impressed.

Always thought I'd do the same if I ever got an Iceman.
Good going

HOT. I don't like it when people make a common famous guitar like the Frankenstrat or relic theirs to make it look "cool" but I have to say that I like this... it's unique and very well done.

Nice paintjob!
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.

Man.. that is awesome. I usually don't care for enormous pictures.. but that was 100% necessary. Good job man. You should post some covers of SOAD songs with you playing that guitar.. I wanna see it in action now.

Oh god it's beautiful, i've always wanted an iceman, but because of the price, i got his SG. I'm a big fan of SOAD and Daron and he is the best guitarist in the world for me and his guitars are always very cool, all that to say you got a very nice guitar.
