DY/ Black swirl project.


I got home from work early and had some time on my hands. I thought I would swirl a body I have had knocking around for an eternity. I started with a white base, then neon yellow, then dipped her with black and clear.
My intention is to clear the body then paint the trem cavity neon pink just like the DY jems. Im hoping this thing is going to look WILD under UV light.
Hope you all like it so far. it kind of reminds me of the purple swirl I did for max a while ago................. but only yellow

Re: DY/ Black swirl project.


that's a really nice swirl ! contrasted and smart -r I can't explain- composition !
the design comes in every ways but no flat signs, no explosions, just well-balanced
that's one really exciting me ! it needs some black/yellow pickups

Thanks
I like a swirl to have lots going on.
Black yellow pickups and a vine neck with leds just for effect Seen the very neck for sale the other day but I cant afford it I think maybe an old neck I have knocking about with pyramids on rosewood will have to do for now.

Good job. Would look good on that 80s christian rock group Stryper. They had a lot of yellow and black I remember!

Awesome John!!

I'd say to go with yellow only pups/knobs/tip............there's PLENTY of black in there already. Add a black or cosmo trem and it will start to drown out all the yellow if you use two color pups too.

Just my thoughts tho..........
