Last Swirl. 21 color salute...

I said I wanted 21 colors, Darren said "I can do that". Sort of a tribute guitar.

The DNA/Universe looking guitar I had posted earlier was NOT mine. Oh well... I think this one rocks...

21 colors in it...

Neon red, neon green, neon pink, neon yellow, brown, peach, silver metallic, gold metallic, black metal flake, jade, magenta, violet, rich purple, blood red, white, navy, beige, gray, black and green...

Forgot neon orange..... LOL...

Yeah, this image doesn't help either. Some of the colors are really sparingly used and to see them you will need the guitar in your hands.

I think this ties Darrens record. LOL. Once cleared this thing should shine.

So now I have:

Blue Boy
Aqua
Halloween
Neptune (to be cleared)
Salute (to be cleared.

I think 5 swirls is enough..... nahhhh ...

I'm curious....did you buy jems to be swirled or are you getting them custom made? I think you posted that but I can't find it.

Those babies sure will make a real nice family pic!

The last 3 bodies were custom made. The Halloween guitar was a RG maple body with the claw and monkey routed. So basically it is a jem body... LOL. Blueboy was an RG with no routing done...

I like it! And it's probably the most expensive swirl ever made too...

Cool swirl, I really like it. I keep tormenting myself whether or not to sell my DNA. (Cuz, I don't play it) But every time I see another nice swirl, I say NO WAY!!! Each swirl is truly a unique work of art.

Wow! Its like a book you could read a hundred times and get a different meaning each time.I swear I saw a face in there.That is completely wild.That would take the place of 10 of my guitars.Everytime I would look at it I would see something different.Have to see it cleared.

I'm impressed. I would expect so many different colors to come out looking awful. But that one looks really good! Kudos.

I like the black and white 'skunk stripe' that goes from the left end of the monkey grip, through where the bridge p'up is and down to the left hand side..sort of like Creuella DeVille's hair...

Very cool swirl. Respect.
