I want to swirl my 777SK, who should I use?

Hey guys, I haven't been on here for a while but I wanted some advice. I have chipped up my JEM777SK and think it's time for a swirl. Nothing extremely fancy but this has been my main axe for a while and is a player. Looking for input on who you guys have used, quality, turn around time and best pricing. I think I want to stick with pink and will only do the body. The other thing I wonder about is how do front routed bodies turn out in this process. I thank you for your input, Jimmy Lowe

I think most folks here would recommend Herc Fede or ATD.

www.abouttimedesigns.com
www.fedecustomshop.com

They have prices on their websites, and I think Herc Fede's prices are slightly lower.

I would go with ATD. Looking at this site he is kind of in the mood for FANTASTIC swirls lately

Hi. I used to have a Herc Fede pink / black swirl on a custom body and 77VSK neck and it was sweet. I think he can do a swirled cover plate for your front routed guitar too. Then all you need is a clear pickguard. You can't go wrong either way, I've had many ATD's and two of Herc's and the quality on both are excellent. Good luck!

rub it in cerealk....we have all seen your fab BMC. I wonder if turbarao does US stuff. I saw Brazil and Latin America mentioned. Cerealk's BMC was awesome though......even tubarao seemed impressed.
