My GMC replica

I wanted to share a couple of pics of my old jem I built 18 months ago, I have just re-swirled it and wanted you all to see her before she goes to a new home.....hopefully.



This guitar is in another thread some where it was an old 'Jem 77FP' neck coverted to 'AANJ' a 'Perle Guitars DNA swirl' body, now its a 'Rocking al over the swirled GMC guitar'!!! Hope you all like it.

Re: My GMC replica

Wow normally I hate GMCs, but this one is very nice. The green has a very cool exotic look and the swirling is done with an excellent flow and no color drops to be seen.
This is a top notch swirl job. Excellent work buddy!

Re: My GMC replica

Now that is a badass GMC. For the most part, I like GMC's but when someone just does a great swirl I have to acknowledge. Good job!

I'll have to say, I like the look of the guitar now. GMC's always look cool and I think they are very classy looking. I liked your old swirl as well. I think the old swirl job would have looked different with a neck that had pyramid inlays. The tree of life didn't go as well as pyramids would have.

That being said I just picked up another one of Perle's swirls off his website. I'm looking forward to seeing how this one will turn out.

Re: My GMC replica

Today I took this guitar into Manchester its now sitting in the window of 'Johnny Roadhouse music' Im using it as an advert for swirling work.........and hoping some random person passing buy with a load of 'folding beer vouchers' in his pocket likes the look of it and buys it!
