All owners of original ibanez swirls. Little help please.

hey all you lucky owners of the real deals could you please help me out with some questions re the colors of your swirls.

is the original PAW florescent? or pastel or just bright pink yellow green and black or pastels shades?

if you have a PAW or a PMC could you please help with you best description of the colors, i would much appreciate it.

i have seen lots of pictures but without holding one in your hands you cant really tell, my florescent swirls look normal on film so? reds can look orange etc.

i know that some of you will also have swirls that were not done by ATD and they apparently, so im told, have a different color to them either brighter or softer i forget which. the more help the merrier.

i was going to put pics up of my latest swirls but i know all id get is when you gonna put them on guitars, so i wont yet.

as i said, the more info the better please. cheers guys and girls.

My ATD UVMC, the colors are about as bright as they can get without me calling them neon. I would say just some extremely bright colors but not neon. Rich I'm sure can tell us. My PMC colors are much more soft and subtle, not nearly as bold as the UVMC.

So... just plain vivid colours?
Do they glow under black light?

Re: All owners of original ibanez swirls. Little help please.

cheers gilkybear much appreciated, were there ever any florescents done does anyone know? The UMVC looks kinda pastel in the pink area would i be right in saying that? is it a pink or more a salmon color? by the way you have to own some of the best looking swirl ive seen mate. kudos.

i hope rich does have a look at this as im very interested in trying to colour match a git on his site the orange greeney brown proto swirl one thats looks awsome. i was just hoping for some more pics of it.

Thanks nutter. The pink in the UV is very very pink, my camera sucks, but it is not salmon at all.

I found, like Rodney that my UV had really bright green and Pink, yet the yellow seemed more like a bright pastel.Of course this was 15 years ago and my memory could be deceiving me.

Re: All owners of original ibanez swirls. Little help please.

Here ya go:








The green is real bright, as is the pink. Even though this UVMC also has some dark pink. There seem to be a lot of shades of colours that Darren made before swirling with the basic colours green, yellow, pink and black. And yes, the colours are that vivid in sunlight

Hope that helped a bit. If you want a specific photo, just PM me.

Cheers, Sam

Brosa

You have one of the nicest swirls I have ever seen.

Apart from the guy that has the cosmic looking DNA here. That is just WOW!

I might try to swirl with neon colours.
I'll let you know after the experiments go.
