Swirling

For those who think swirling a guitar is too difficult.
A lot of myths out there and weird formulas.
It's simple.......2 minutes.......it's greasy kids stuff

Sue him not me.
Video is to show how to do it and not to judge HIS ways of doing it.
The technique is there, if you think his is bad, do it yourself

Re: Swirling

just saying if he did better measuring and testing it would be solved. Hence the 2 step process being easy = easy if you want bad results.

Ok but its his guitar, if he's happy with it, who cares.
Whoever will do it, do it better still technique is simple and not rocket science.
I used to do swirlings on paper in kindergarten and there are beach parks here with that swirling machine which you press some buttons to drop paint while that machine swirl them.
It's funny.

Not me........him
Maybe he's just starting swirling(guessing here) or he just don't care who knows?
But I've seen people in some forums who don't have a clue how swirls are made, I keep wondering if they don't know youtube and google!

Re: Swirling

The Swirled Guitar Market,at this stage,is over....

Maybe over the past 2 years,yes,they sold like hot cakes,but now,its very tough.

Nate and Backyarders like myself have flooded the market with unfinished @ $130 and finished @ $230.

Unless you have an exceptional example,flawless,u have a minimal chance of cost recovery,even less to make a $$.

Thats why i have gone another route....this one is an absolute STUNNER.

Wont take long for others to be doing the same.

Spewin,i stuffed up the Bridge Pickup Route,so it will just have to have Pickup Rings on it.

Its nearly finished...

A forum is to share opinions.
Probably sharing opinions is trolling to you.
