Let's Make A PAW 7 String Swirl :)

Ok I got a nice Ibanez 7 coming in and I am going to convert it to a PAW.


I have my inlay decal pyramids on order from Jockomo

Guitar should be here tomorrow.


Here is a test swirl I did last night. Anyone who knows the stock Pink from Humbrol is not very pink, its more Fender Shell Pink then hot pink. So I had to do some color mixing on my own. This is the hottest I could make it with out it being red. I need to add a lot more yellow when doing the guitar.

anyways here is the test swirl.

Less Yellow and a darker Green would be cool.
I like wider / thicker lines too.
Just my opinion.

Yep! Lines really need to be wider.

Re: Let's Make A PAW 7 String Swirl :)

this was a test dip on a small scale, plus to be 100% honest I am not a fan of the thicker swirls, to me a swirl needs to be chaotic so there is more to see, the thick ones you see it all in one shot never finding small nuances or cool little areas.

Guitar comes in today according to the tracking.

Re: Let's Make A PAW 7 String Swirl :)

that looks nice, I like it alot, more pink and it would be perfect for me

I think since the knobs and pickups are green I dont want to overdo the green but thats just me.

I dig it, did you finish it? any pics?

Ok been a very busy morning, sanding, burning crap off, and getting stuff ready..

Here is our donor.. pretty well played, lots of dings and what not which only made my job harder but not impossible..



Stock Pickups painted and ready to go



Headstock ding fixed, and new black coats applied, clear is next.



Body Fixed, Sealed, and Primed for Swirling..

The pink looks purple.

Re: Let's Make A PAW 7 String Swirl :)

I did have loads of pictures of it, but this is the only one I could find. in the end I put the original board back on as this board was a bit pants and I made a balls up of fitting this maple one on, I didnt have the right tools at the time and it was my first attempt at fitting a board. Some one once said to me "There is no such thing as a hard job, as long as you have the right tools" I now have the right tools and have fitted a few boards sucessfully LOL

Re: Let's Make A PAW 7 String Swirl :)

I decided at the last minute to change things up, you know the PAW has been done so many times, I really got to thinking how about something unusual ya know, make it mine. Something not everyone has.

Anyways I came up with this. LOL Will still go with the green pickups, headstock logo, knobs, and the pyramids. Kinda a mix between PAW and DNA
