I can only see thumbnails. Do you have a high res source of these pictures?

I love it! Who did the swirl? I'm in the middle of the very same project.

Congrats!

Re: NGD: Custom GMC Swirl UV!!

I did the swirl myself, and I do agree, a little more black could have been better! My next one will be less sporadic. I made it more haywire on purpose... personal taste

Oh man, I wish I could get swirling down. I've tried a few times but with disastrous results. Kudos on your work. Swirling is way more involved than certain guitar sites would have you think.

Re: NGD: Custom GMC Swirl UV!!

I love those GMC universe models. But i would reswirl this one. I don't like the faded black that blended with the green. I prefer strong lines in the swirl.

Re: NGD: Custom GMC Swirl UV!!

ya same here, its not perfect, but its got character...which i love. id never reswirl it just because ill swirl other guitars, and theyll all look different. i love the way this one looks, plus id be too impatient to be without it while i reswirl the body haha it just plays so good!!

Personally I prefer more striking swirls but it looks nice & if you did it yourself & you like it that's all that counts!
