New Swirls PICS!!

Here are my 3 projects from Herc. Plan to finish all three by the end of 2010. I took a beat to hell DY & had it swirled in PAW colors, Warmoth Strat in PMC & a Warmoth Tele in PMC. I like all of the swirls, and they should like nice hanging next to the DNA & ATD aftermarket swirl. These aren't clear coated yet in the pics, so they will shine up quite a bit more. Herc did some fine work, not ATD fine, but good enough for me! Time to get the soldering iron out!! My least favorite part.

I agree. They are ace. Particularly the strat. They equal pretty much any swirl I've seen.

Re: New Swirls PICS!!

Yeah, I'm usually not a big fan of Herc's swirls because they're almost always too zig-zagged and angular. Looks like he's getting aways from that a little, because these are pretty awesome! I especially like the colors on that Strat, but the JEM is a close second.

Congrats on a killer trio!

Swirls aren't my thing but mmmmm...I'd have to change my mind if I could have an RG swirled exactly like that tele.

Man, those are hot hot hot. Fede does the coolest swirls, imho. Some may say he's "predictable" but that's kinda what I like about him. Very obviously his work. Same for ATD; the color mix and pattern.

For not being clear coated, those still look awesome! Post some after-clear shots!

Well as that was a clear shot at me, I'll have to respond. He is predictable. As soon as I opened up the thread and saw these were Herc swirls, I knew I was going to see the obligatory pink, green, purple and yellow colors. Hence the predictability. Granted the buyer wanted these colors but they are what Herc mainly uses. I didn't say he was predictable to pile on, just that his swirls in my opinion are predictable. Meaning: he doesn't change them up much. They're cool but predictable.

I'm just pleased that Herc is feeling up to doing swirls again

And when they turn out like these ones...

Re: New Swirls PICS!!

Swirled777 - Do you think maybe his choice of colors is predictable only because most of his customers specifically request the usual early 90s swirl colors? I just wish his swirls were either more chaotic or that his 'zigzags' were more curvy and 's' shaped.

Either way, these are pretty cool.

Well I think it has to do with his color usage but I didn't want to point out the fact that I don't care for how he swirls. But since you opened that can HAHA I'll throw my .02 cents. Yeah my issue's are about the same as yours, I just feel that his swirls are "predictable"
