Re: The very first swirl EVER?

yeah it is true, fenders "bowling ball swirls" were the first swirled guitars. they were also done by darren johansen. what isnt true is it isnt a jem...it was before the jems if i remember correctly. thats probably just there so people understand that it was swirled by the same guy. it was in the 80's, before vai's jems were developed that these were made. very valuable guitars as well!

They were the first production run of swirls, but in no way the first swirls. Darren learned to swirl working for Despagni, and those would have been the first.

Re: The very first swirl EVER?

Well I mean swirling has been around for thousands of years, starting out with pottery and stuff....so yeah, they are the first "production swirls" but essentially that in my eyes makes them the first swirls.
