I don't mean to be rude, but I dislike it. The swirls are too tight for these colors and the colors are not evenly distributed. I do like the other ones very much though, good job!!!

The real swirled JEMS didn't always have even color distrubution either......I think this is about as close as anyone could possibly get to the look of a factory Ibanez swirl, period. (Besides Darren)

I like it. I'd like it a little better if the swirl "flowed" a little better. BTW, how well is the paint going to stay on a painted pickguard?

Thanks! Glad you like it.

Its going to stay REAL good considering I sanded it REAL good, put an adhesion promoter on the pickguard and primed it. How good does the paint stay on a bumper on a car, or mirrors on a car, or a street bike, their plastic too. So to answer your question the paint will stick fine and will last just as long as the paint on the rest of the guitar.

Re: Another Passion & Warfare Swirl from Sims Custom Shop

I'm loving these nightly swirl posts. Ok, so what is there left to do...Orange Multi....GMC....have we don a PMC yet?

But seriously, I think it's a nice swirl. The only thing I notice was that the yellow was not quite as vibrant. I don't know, i'm still so caught up in the "Starry Night" swirl. I think that may very well be my favorite swirl, next to the DNA's. One things for sure, it's going to be a tough act to follow.

The yellow is not vibrant b/c there is VERY little yellow in it, actualy the yellow has somewhat mixed into the rest of the colors. The main colors were Black, Green, Pink, White and like I said very very little yellow. Still, its pretty darn close. I'm actually photoshopping the Steve Vai picture above right now as we speak and putting my guitar in his hands......wait til you see it, its looks practically just like the one he's holding, I guarantee you I could have done it and posted it and no one would have even realized the swirl was different, its that close.

The late night swirls are almost over. I just got a few bodys left to swirl, and I got some customer guitars, basses, and necks I need to finish by Monday.

I have already done a GMC but I don't have pics of it. I plan on doing some more GMC's, an Orange and Black swirl, a Yellow and Black swirl, Blue & White swirl, Black & White swirl, Red & White swirl, a Blue Black White and Green swirl, and of course some more PAW's within the next month or so.

Well done, you cracked the code on that swirl. Will you post all these on your site as soon as they get final clearcoat? Id love to see the finished product.

Re: Another Passion & Warfare Swirl from Sims Custom Shop

Yea I will post the final pictures of it as soon as its all done. But that could be a while, I gotta clear it, buff it, then get a new ste of pickups (B/c these are the ones I use for mocking up guitars) have it wired, set up, etc etc.....I'd say it'll be a month or longer before I have it totally finished (working in my spare time on it), but rest assure it will be prefect when its done.

In my honest opinion I actually think the colors and the swirl looks better than the original one when you look at the pic where he's holding the original, and the one I photoshopped with him holding mine.....The swirl on the original one is too strait, especially if you look at the area behind the tremelo and the uppper horn, don't get me wrong, its still a bad guitar and one of my favorites, but I just like the look, the swirl, and the colors better are mine, and I'm honestly not just saying that b/c its one I did. I actually think it looks like a factiry Ibanez swirl done in the early 90's........and thats hard to replicate.

Re: Another Passion & Warfare Swirl from Sims Custom Shop

No offense, but I think these swirls are too "busy". Like C.Thep said, the swirl is too tight (in our opinion) but there again it doesn't look bad or anything.

It's your own style I guess
