Yep, i do have a huge deeping tank, then i can swirl the body, neck and headstock all together, on the same swirl.
Customer is thinking about the complete swirl on the neck, anyway the mahogany on neck is sick!
So he's gonna choose between complete swirl or 'body and headstock swirl', keeping the back of the neck on natural clear finish, showing the brazilian mahogany!

The ARS site adress was correct, but after 6 years online, it needs a huge update. I'm updating it myself (doing a favor to my friend) and need to put some "under construction" page. The offline aspect was due to hosting change, etc: not my choice!!!.
Maybe tomorrow it's gonna have an index page. I need to sort this out ASAP!

Today, the neck received the final shape and got the first coat of clear sealant/paint.
LOOKS REALLY KEWL SO FAR!!!

More info soon!
Thanx

I pretty much lurk around this forum, and I rarely post (check my count), but your work never fails to impress me. Always something different and original. Keep it it up.

when the first picture of the primed guitar showed up I was expecting to see it already swirled, especially after you said "magic time". Are you teasing us?
