HOLY sh!t

They are all nice, but that stone swirl is the coolest color combo I have ever seen...

I swear by the ROCK GODS, I will have a stone swirled Jem one day!!! I was thinking of putting together a guitar as a project...If and when I do that is going to be my color choice!!

The swirls are so well done! Awesome freaking job!

Re: Element Swirls

Finish looks great as always. These are very reminiscent of your "usual" style. Just out of curiosity, do you ever do swirls that are slightly less "mixed up"? More in the vein of the original stuff from Ibanez? Is that something totally up to the preference of your customer?

Thanks!
I prefer them to be chaotic. It seems that all the colors are better represented and distributed. I could make them less so by not mixing the paint as much.

Re: Element Swirls

Well your style is definitely unique. Not my style but you can't argue with the quality of the work. Keep it up.

Re: Element Swirls

Any whole guitar shots? they look great, but its tough to judge a swirl by a shot of an 1/8th of a guitar
