Your opinion on swirl colours please - pics available

I'm going to swirl my universe and an RG7 in the next couple of weeks, and I've done some testing, but I can't decide on colours I think I'm going to PAW the RG (to sell), and DNA the Universe (to keep), but I may do something different - anyone got any nice ideas (apart from the BMC which is the obvious suggestion lol). I've done some test pieces of wood here:

But I only had a few colours (also ignore the lines under the swirl in some pics - it's the brushed undercoat - won't be on the final guitar). I need to get a decent red and pink for the PAW and DNA, but I also like the GMC. What do you lot think????

You do a nice job on swirls man! I like "Fire" the best, but the colors need to be darker, at least the reds.

I like the blue green, the GMC and the "Fire". But I'd have the colours darker personally, unless its your camera making them look pale

Unfortunately yes - the flash seems to make them all a bit paler

The PAWs doesnt look too PAW to me ... maybe i want more pink instead of orange (at least from what i think of PAW)

Yeah, I agree - as I said I need to go and buy a proper red and pink - the red I have looks ok in the tin, and sometimes goes on red - but if it goes on a bit thinner it goes very orange, as you can see - Next week I think a trip to the paint shop is in order

They look so cool! I think they need to be darker, though as you say the camera flash has a lot to do with. Keep up the good work.
