Wink Sebastian's DNA Jem Swirl Guitar!

Sebastian's DNA Swirl
I had to really be on my toes for this as Sebastian can be a hard one to please. It's always good to have high standards though. Next is his DNA clone/brother and two PMC twins. 4 will be swirled but only two, will be picked....Stay tuned...

Looks great. Can't wait to see it with the clear.

Sebastian, were you ever able to find a good donor for the powder cosmo hardware?

Post Re: Sebastian's DNA Jem Swirl Guitar!

Sebastian snagged five Jem bodies and two custom necks off of another member here. I'm swirling all five and Sebastian is going to pick his favorite ones. Haven't decided what to do with the others yet but I'm thinking of just building them into whole custom guitars and maybe doing custom inlay necks for them. This is a picture of one one my PMC's. That is the general idea that Sebastian wants to aim for on two on them. As it goes though they wont be the same but just channel the same vibe. At least there won't be any tedious lion claw cutting on these.

It looked better in person than in Michael's pics.

In my opinion, Michael has hit on something with his swirls, they have such nice defined lines with little to no transparency giving them an eye popping look!

Re: Sebastian's DNA Jem Swirl Guitar!
