New Daren Johansen swirl

Got this last week. Swirl done by Daren Johansen of ATD Sold as a Jem replica. The humbuckers are Dimarzio Evolution pick ups and the middle pick up is a Jem single coil. The last four frets need to be scalloped which I'll do some time. I have hmmmm 3 or 4 guitars that need the last 4 scalloped.

Re: New Daren Johansen swirl

Hehe yeah, I have a habit of bidding at the last 10 seconds. To my credit though I don't use any bots or programs. I just wait and wait and wait and then hope my bid is high enough.

I lost out on that PMC one.

Sweet buy. Wish I had had the money for it. Found a pic of this on ATD's website from 2004 using the internet wayback thingy. So cheap for what it is. Congrats

Re: New Daren Johansen swirl

I thought this thread was about a new swirl from Darren.

Too bad it's not a new swirl from Darren, but an old swirl from Darren in new hands.

Congrats anyway! She's a beauty.

Nice. Darren is often imitated but never duplicated.

Re: New Daren Johansen swirl

Excellent guitar. Always loved that color pattern but it was never on a 6-string. Where is the neck from on that thing?

Also, aren't you the guy with the yellow Celica?

Re: New Daren Johansen swirl

Yeah the neck isn't an ibanez, it was made by someone else. The logo and jem logo are stickers. It was sold as a jem copy though, not passed off as an acutal jem.

Yeah! That's my 03 Celica GT turbo. Sweet ride. Man if you think guitars cost a lot, get into modding cars. It cost $7000 to turbo it, but it puts a smile on my face every time I hit the gas. I have an extra engine in my garage, in case I blow mine. I might start building up. (Darton sleeves, different pistons, rods, valves, valve springs etc) THAT will cost some bucks!

Re: New Daren Johansen swirl

Well the neck looks really good, but how does it feel and play compared to an OEM Ibanez neck?

I recognized your screen name
