Out of this Swirled still in business?

I have been wanting to get a swirl done and I really love their work, but I see conflicting info about weather they are still doing business or not. Anyone have any thoughts?

thanks!

My understanding is Alan retired. He was their swirl-master.

Nope they are done with swirls.
They have been selling off everything they had left in stock.

If you want a god swirl, contact Livewire Guitars.

I live right near them and have see many of Michael's swirls up close and they are very nice and the clearcoats are top notch!

He even does fingerboard replacements with Vines, DNAs and Pyramids.

A big +1 for Michael at Livewire. He is working on a custom for me right now. Not only are his swirls stunning, he is one of the coolest, nicest most communicative guys I've ever worked with. He really cares and wants you to have your dream guitar. I know he is pretty slammed right now but I would highly recommend calling him and getting your project in line if you're serious.

I should also mention our own Andrewsfury right here on Jemsite does some damn nice swirls as well. He did one of his Purple Ice swirls for me and it came out gorgeous. I've also seen A GMC swirl by him that looked top notch. If Michael is too backed up you might try contacting Andrew and see if he can bust out a swirl for you. He's also a super nice guy who's very easy to work with... And is now a friend of mine!

Area51 still has some swirls from Al for sale. There are some real killer ones among them. Shoot him an e-mail, i'm sure you can work out a price.
