NGD - for all swirl lovers

Just picked up my new LiveWireGuitars DNA...

It is simply beautiful!
The clear-coat looks like a glass table top...

Michael does great work and is a great guy on top of that...

He called and talked shop for about 45 minutes on his own dime to let me know about shipping, when to expect the guitar and info about his swirling and clear-coat processes.

Checkout his work if you're in the market for a swirl...
You won't be disappointed...

Oh...and I apologize in advance if I attached these photos incorrectly...
I'm much better at buying guitars, than I am at computer skills...

Here are the pics...

Re: NGD - for all swirl lovers

Michael is a kickass guy to do business with. I also find it hilarious he talked to you about his clear coats for so long because he once sent me a long email about his clear coats.

Its true though, his clear coats are really ****ing ridiculously awesome. Actually i think his clear was better than the one on a $6000 mayones i had once.

I was wondering that too... For some reason pics of Livewire's swirls usually look a lot different when they are the customer's pics...

I've only been able to find one set of customer pictures and they aren't taken in the best light, so they're hard to judge by. Livewire's pics have the contrast and saturation jacked way up, which is what this looks like (look at the reflections from the hardware in the first picture or the worn vs. not worn part of the neck plate).

I'm not saying he does bad work, just that I'd like to see what it really looks like.

Mine looked WAY better in person. Obviously Livewire's pics have been color corrected but they do look that vivid in person.

I ****ing love his swirls

Re: NGD - for all swirl lovers

Livewire's pics look very close to the real thing.
I've seen many of them in person and they look better in person.
Their colors blow away all of the real Ibanez colors.
You won't get the drab colors other swirlers are using.

He had a PAW swirled Jem copy RG570 (i think) with a sweet looking swirl and a nice looking pyramid board on ebay (quite awhile ago) that I was really interested in buying. I asked him for some pics without all the color correction and he swore up and down that the pics weren't altered at all.... I really didn't know what to think at that point
