Self-made Swirl Codename Epic 7

Hello,

after I successfully finished my self-made JEM Revelation Iím now working on a new, 7 string version of this guitar. The specifications are nearly the same than on the Revelation: 2 piece-Alder-Body and a 5-piece-Maple-Bubinga-Neck. The swirled DNA style inlays of the Revelation are absolute great in my eyes , but I need something more awesome inlays for this one. I decided to give it a try for a swirled vine inlay. Here are the finished parts (Body and Neck) for the Epic 7.



The Swirl paint job on this one will be something completely new and something never seen before. Later more to the swirl. The Body and the neck were made by Christopher Woods (again).

You can also follow this project on my website, too.
Coments are welcome.

Regards,
VVolverine

Re: Self-made Swirl Codename Epic 7

Hi,

it's been a while, but my customers come first
But now, during the christmas holiday I could test my new MSMx-Technologie for my Swirling techniques. Here's the swirl of my Codename Epic 7 and I think this is some never seen before...

Any comments are welcome...

Regards,
Mirko

This is awesome. Very nice contrast between the colors and the swirls individually are very well done.

Re: Self-made Swirl Codename Epic 7

But can a swirl be done using flip-flop paints? that's gotta be the next logical step
