Swirled bass....

Hi all,

Just swirled my bass players bass guitar (Ibanez soundgear):

http://uk.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/fay...bum?.dir=/9df9

I'll try to get some more pics up once it's put back together. I'm actually starting to prefer swirls like this that have complimentary colours instead of neon clashing colours - this bass looks lovely in the flesh!

cheers,

Rich

Re: Swirled bass....

I see you went with a blue and white swirl. Nice. Kind of reminds me a bit of Tubaoro's blue swirl he posted a while back.

Yeah, I thought that when I saw the pics of his guitar - very similar shades as I remember - blues just make lovely swirls.
And this must be the quickest reply ever - I was just starting another thread in another forum and popped back here to find a reply already!

^Well, there's not much to do around here, especially when your end-of-year exams are over...

Kamikaze mate, look at your postcount!



Nice swirl, I kinda like it. I'm never sure if I like swirls or not, overall, but that's a pretty nice one.

Great. And it's the holy month of Ramadhan to boot. .

Say, since you kindly spotted the number, are you a Muslim? and are you fasting?

I guess this is post 667.

You could always learn to do it yourself. How do you go about swirling a guitar anyhow?

Re: Swirled bass....

Your swirls are excellent. Great definition, and separation of colors. Someday i hope to be doing my own.
peace

Re: Swirled bass....

thats not a bass, why are there 6 holes at the bridge?
How much did it cost for you to swirl it? (how much was the paint, etc...)

Re: Swirled bass....

Maybe those are screw holes for mounting the bridge?

Nice swirl BTW
