swirling (via ATD) *a UV777GR - blasphemy?

picked up a UV777GR from evil-bay, and was thinking about getting it swirled by ATD. Probably the only way to get a 7 string MC with a maple neck

Any suggestions on colors? How does ATD work? Do they swirl up a sample and let you see it before putting it on?

thanks, roland

I saw you buy that, put some faith back in that 'somebody' was willing to spend the coin on a GR.

Just go for it, probably the best candidate for a swil job considering the maple neck and pyramid inlays, route a monkey grip and it'll be just like a Jem PMC.

If you're gonna do it. do it NOW!

Darren is just about ready to do the next batch. Mine and Guitargirls have been waiting there at ATD for months. So if you want it do it now lest you wait til 2002.
Darren's a busy man


email him and let him know its on the way. or better yet, call him. he's realitvly easy to reach.

He can also help with color schemes.

cool, thanks! I just sent him mail, I'll try and give him a call on Monday as well. *Leaning towards turning it into a 7-string PMC at this point, that would probably look pretty cool...

While we're on the topic.. how does ATD work? Do you have to contact Darren first and then send him the guitar? How do you pay him? How long does it take? And to repeat Roland's question, do you get to preview your colors beforehand.... or if you're unhappy with the swirl paint job, tough s*** ?

After I get that lefty Edge installed (yeah, I'm that guy) on my second main guitar (RG470LH), I may, if I like the way it plays, go for a swirl, lion's claw & monkey grip....

I personally think that if you have the $400-500 to plunk down to swirl an ugly guitar, GO FOR IT.

Flourescent green guitars went out with Aquanet. :glare:
