Guitar Guru Swirl

My first decent swirl. I've been experimenting. Let me know what you guys think?

If it looked like the upper horn your swirl would be only another swirl out there.
I think this way it's awesome.
The lower horn with less painting added a fog,smoked looking to it.
If I was close to you for sure i'll try to buy it.

Thanks again.
It's a Tom Anderson body. It has a very old mint ESP Strat neck with a discontinued black Kayler Floyd Rose.

Re: Guitar Guru Swirl

i dug it.
add more paint on the tank, just to cover the entire body properly.
That swirl looks like you have stopped 5 or 6 times during the dipping process:
next time make it trow in the water 'flushy', slowly and without any interruption.
keep it up!

Re: Guitar Guru Swirl

I think it looks great. I really love the colour of it. I'd buy it off you for sure. Wait!! I can see a face on the lower horn of the body! Looks like a guy wearing a pair of sunglasses with the left side of his face as you look at it in shadow. Anybody else see it? If not I'm definitely going slightly mad, lol!!
