Hey dude,like the paint job,like the pickup colors,don't like the pickguard color.Maybe a dbk or a colored mirror pickguard(like purple) would complete the cool vibe.How did you do the paint job,it doesn't really look swirled?I like it.Any plans for the neck?

That looks great man!

How does one go about doing that? I've got a 550 that's begging for a swirljob.

I think it look cool, kinda like the 7-string Vai uses in the FTLOG video.

You can either get them from Jeannie or from Chandler.

It looks more multi-coloured marble than swirl. Certainly unique.

That's not a swirl, it's a pastel watercolour...

Looks like a lot of work to get those colours right. Nice job! Certainly not my colours, though.

Well, it definitely wasn't watercolor, hehehe, and it's not pastel colors either, they don't show well here, but they are all irridescent colors, they'll look brighter and funkier when it's cleared.
