Who does swirls?

Does anyone know who does GOOD swirls now?

Herc passed away.
ATD is MIA.
Livewire is back ordered forever and a day.
OOTS is gone.
Nat Pearle sucks.

So who does UVRE/LIVEWIRE quality swirls? I would love to get another livewire but the guy is back ordered so.....

Re: Who does swirls?

You have listed all the big names...

There's a guy who used to be on here, dgbaker if I remember correctly, who did some swirls for Thorn guitars a few years ago. Very high quality but a very different style...

Hmm I will take a gander. Thank you.

I know there is Mai Guitar too but his swirls seem to have that faded look to them.

Definitely neeeeeed that super vivid UVRE style.

Re: Who does swirls?

While I don't think that Michael's style is really anything like Darren's, he's got the UVRE colors down really well. You sells complete guitars pretty regularly.

I think your mind is going to be blown when you see the guitar he's working on for me. It's a combo that I've never seen before. andyt did one kind of like it but not exactly.

Re: Who does swirls?

Andy (Andrewsfury) is set-up again and doing some VERY nice swirls. He did my purple ice last year. He was also friendly with Herc and learned a great deal about Herc's style. I would highly recommend contacting him and discussing what you want.

Still have not gotten my shout out from both guitars I FIXED and CLEARED for Andrew...FRO FREE! Remember the wonderful shipping damage?

Looks great man! If you could send me any other completed pics of it assembled that would be great. Any idea what happened with the other one I did?

Re: Who does swirls?

Livewire does not do custom work anymore, just sells complete guitars. I believe he was getting way behind on custom orders.

I sold him a guitar and the experience was frustrating due to his lack of organization. I would be hesitant to buy anything from him based on my interactions with him. He did not come off as professional in any aspect.
