Wink New! DNA HxH UV Swirl Project! Body, Headstock and Neck Swirled!

I was working on a Neck through swirl recently and thought, why not try the same concept on a bolt on. I know it's kind of a crazy idea but I figured it would make for an interesting multicolor theme. Both the body and neck are from a RG7620 guitar. I went ahead and cut a side jack into the bottom to make it more of a HxH UV body.

Here are a few pic of both the body and neck. Both where swirled in matching DNA fashion. This one ended up having more of a traditional balance of colors with the pinks and reds being more dominant. As for the neck you need not worry, I striped the neck past the clear and sealer before applying the swirl paint and did NOT paint the fingerboard. I applied a neon green Ibanez check logo. I did have a pink UV decal for the bottom but weeding the vinyl wasn't a fun task today so I just went with green instead. They were originally supposed to be Green Check, Pink UV logo because of the green patch at the tip but the green on green came out nice. The GR,GR logo does have more separation in person.

I'm going to install alternating Green, Pink, and maybe Red Dot inlays to brighten up the front of the neck. With the swirl on the neck you know I had to have something other than just white dots. Maybe do a 4 fret scallop? One of the newest things I will also be using are Powder Coated Green tuning buttons. Yes, green tuning heads! Next we begin clear coat.

Re:Completed Full Swirl DNA HxH Universe Project! Body, Headstock and Neck Swirled!

Here are the completed pics of the DNA Full Swirl. I also installed pickups from a Green Dot Universe as well as multicolor dot inlays. It was hard to capture every angle of the swirl in the photos since there's so much of it.

I have to say, I think you've got the colours, the vibrancy, the balance all down perfectly

I'd like to see a little bit more "swirl" and a little less "stripe" perhaps (not the up down up that are often seen on the afternarket swirls) but yeah, overall, these are fantastic

Yeah man I agree with this. It would put these swirls over the top if they had more swirl and less stripe to them. The necks especially kind of remind me of a candy cane or that fruit stripe gum... You're doing an awesome job on these regardless man!!!

Your colourful swirls always make me want to eat some fruit or something, and jolly ranchers.
