Pretty unique. I like the swirl into yellow back into swirl thing going on. Excellent!

Re: Guitar Guru Swirl#2

I'm glad your customer likes it, but if I'd ordered a swirl and I got that, I'd want my money back!

more of a mess than a swirl imho

Re: Guitar Guru Swirl#2

No problem guys. I appreciate the honest comments. I think it will look completely different when it's together.

Re: Guitar Guru Swirl#2

Yeah, I'm not loving that one. It looks a bit like it was wiped after coming out of the tank, especially near the knob holes on the front.

Re: Guitar Guru Swirl#2

I think it has potential but the things that I noticed are:
1) The colors aren't separated enough which makes it look messy.
2) The distribution of colors is uneven.

That said, I know how unpredictable swirling can be and the quality of any given swirl is highly subjective.

Re: Guitar Guru Swirl#2

a bit too "messy" or "cluttered" for me but keep it up!

That actually was paint running back down out of one of the pickup cavities.
It overlapped. I don't think I could do it again and the lions claw is completely different.
