That swirl blows my mind. I've seen it before on another of your threads.

Re: Sun was out so took some pics

They're both great, but I'm still especially intrigued by the gold/black one. In the original thread on that guitar, you never disclosed how you did the finish. I recall that it had a feint seam on the edge and had some texture to the finish before clearcoating. Trade secret? Or would you be willing to clue us in?

Oh, thanks! I missed that description. That was a really creative twist to swirls and it's certainly among my favorite JS!

Re: Sun was out so took some pics

At the risk of merely joining public consensus.......that black/gold swirly baby is hugely

I have messed myself thoroughly

Excuse me while i go clean up so i can drool some more!!! That is one fantastic looking beauty It's also fantastically suited to the JS body shape. One of the best looking guitars ever to me

That black/gold swirl is truly amazing. It reminds me of a neoclassical painting or something like this:
