Re: Do you like Swirls?

Yes, I really love the way they look. Although I like certain color combinations more than others. I once saw a purple one, which was awesome. Having said that, I prefer a more understated look for my guitars, in general. With a nice transparent color... It would be nice to own a swirl, though.

Here is a nice one.

Re: Do you like Swirls?

Yeah, it's done by Darren Johansen, according to the owner. I think I've heard other people mention they liked his work, too.

The owner also calls this an 'ATD swirl'. I have no idea what that means. Does anyone know?

Darren swirled the pmc, gmc and some of the uvmc guitars. ATD stands for About Time Designs.

Re: Do you like Swirls?

I like swirls, but not over any other finish. Where's that option?
