Jem OMC copy or not?

So, I've this one here. Alder body, 7VWH neck and so on:





Should I make it an OMC swirl or not? I did this test today at work (Black, red, orange and white):



Also, this was a quick attempt of black, red and white:


Opinions?

EDIT: The orange one looks a bit sloppy and that's because when having the woodblock in the bucket, I noticed that I hadn't
anything to wipe off the rest of the paint. Tried to blow the paint away, but didn't succeed much. That's why some paint got
on the swirl when taking the block off the bucket.

Orange in my opinion. The red looks awesome though.

Red black and white is the way to go.

Re: Jem OMC copy or not?

Both are great, the red is more subtle looking, but the OMC is always nice to see, and its rare to see it, whereas there are red swirls everywhere.

Please don't do another Diablo swirl. OMC's are pure win.

Re: Jem OMC copy or not?

Yeah, I prefer orange as well. I've loved the OMC Jem since I first saw the pic of Vai's one.

I guess I'll do it. I'm just a bit worried that if I screw something up..

Re: Jem OMC copy or not?

Are you kidding me? Even though the swirl is a little off from an OMC its still an unbelievable swirl. I absolutely love the swirl.

Great job dude its definately a quality swirl.

Thanks a lot!

I was supposed to to an OMC swirl, but couldn't resist throwing in some yellow and red. Could be a little more orange there, though.

But thanks again to all of you who like my swirls. This is only my second guitar swirl. Just need some more bodies to experiment a bit more..
