Jem Build.... which swirl?

So, Ernie from ET guitars has swirled 2 bodies for me and I can pick one to be my new jem build.... I did a rough dodgy mockup with neck/hardware/knobs etc..... which do you prefer... top or bottom?

Looking only at the swirls, not at the rest I'd go for top.

Well, if you like a lot of black get the bottom one.
If you like more pink and green get the top one.

I like them both. Sorry that's no help, but they are both very nice swirls.

I like the first one but then I do not like a lot of black in those swirls.

I like the one with more black--it's a little different.

Re: Jem Build.... which swirl?

Cheers guys....i do like em both.... Its a hard choice..... But gonna go with the bottom one.... Up close Ernie says its has less blemishes and the colours are strong throughout.... Its a little less PAW. And a little more 'Evil Swirl'...cheers for helping!
