Stealth's Seven String Swirl (crazy fretboard, better swirl)

Hey guys, here are some pics of a project I've got going on with LiveWire guitars. Its a 7620 thats being completely torn apart.

Here's what's been done so far

-Swirled
-New flamed maple fb
-DNA double helix inlay

I will be getting anodized red sperzels and possibly (probably haha) powder coating the trem red, because why not?

Enjoy the pics:

Sebastian down in Fl, has nothing but great things to say about them!
I just received an E.T. Neck and blank body from Sebastian, Maybe I should have had him drop it off there first as he suggested.....

Re: Stealth's Seven String Swirl (crazy fretboard, better swirl)

I too have nothing but good things to say about LiveWire. Obviously I haven't received my guitar yet as its still being built but communication with Michael @ LiveWire has been really good. A lot better than some other luthiers I've spoken with. His pricing is great too, for a similar project with a local up here in Canada I probably would have payed another 500-600 on top of what im paying already, even factoring in shipping and whatnot. His swirls are also the available on this side of the pond IMO!

That looks killer!

He's doing the fretboard replacement for me on my Flame Guitar.
I'm also getting a DNA swirl done on one of my guitar bodies.

Pretty well done swirl, I just don't like 1 color swirl.
I'd love if it had some shades of that red, from dark to bright

Re: Stealth's Seven String Swirl (crazy fretboard, better swirl)

Yeah I was originally thinking of doing a black, red and either using neon green or neon pink as a third colour but ended up sticking with this because of the hardware choices.

Worth noting, there is actually a lot more sparkle in the black. That picture doesn't show it very well but maybe this does? (bad pic but oh well)
