mike777 PEACE! I believe I read that there was a miscommunication. Let's leave it at that. The swirl jod was appreciated for it's good work but it wasn't your thing and it's your opinion and you're entitled to it. I don't think anyone took it personally (go back a few posts). But, this really boils down to "I'm out of place right now" so I'm stepping back out of it now. Sorry for butting in-sincerely.

athlon Why do things have to be this complicated

If you think i have insulted you, because i said that the paintwork isnt my "thing" then someone is being a bit oversensitive! And if you think i made a personal attack on you then you are way wrong !!

you are automatically branding yourself beneath me if you believe that you have to like what i like .. i just think it looks a bit "busy", i tried to spray a guitar once and made a complete mess of it, so no-one is trying to impune your work, or be condascending

if you read my posts, i actually comment how proffesional a job i think it is !!

but this is turning into something personal, and i dont want that ..

maybe the mods can shed some light on this. its just an opinion, its nebulus, its means nothing, there is no right and wrong ...

Two hands31 Those are schweet!! If I had half the nice guitars you had I'd be happy.

davenit Athlon, Maybe you didn't see the LOL emoticon after it, indicating that I am laughing. Which means at the time it really didn't bother me. But since now you insist on insulting me AGAIN here are some thoughts for you...

So why make any comment at all? I started this thread to show my guitars, not to have you come here and suggest that they are "absolutely awful".

If you don't like swirls just say they aren't your cup of tea, don't go out of your way to insult me.

Grow up and act like an adult. Do not insult some one's taste. If you don't like them just state it. Don't call it awful.

The only reason for your post was to insult me and my instruments. If you would have phrased it different it would have sent a different message. Your comments were insulting to me personally. Calling my taste "awful". If you just would have said "I don't like swirls" I would have said "there not everyone's taste" and wished you the best.

It's all how you put it bud. Grow up and get over yourself.

Hey all thanks. Athlon, it definitely is your opinion, the problem is that I don't remember asking for it.
hey Dave, no offense meant, and no need for the sarcastic comment

your right you didnt ask for my opinion

but by posting your pictures on the nets biggest Jem devoted site ... then what did you think you where gonna get ?!?!?!?

the qaulity of the work is very proffesional, its just not me thats all ...

so get over it ...

davenit Entropy (great alias!!!)

They are not stacked in any order. I wanted the white one in the middle for artsy fartsy reasons. The swirls had to be together because they have different tonal characteristics (not musically, but color) and I knew B+W would work well with this.

The 4th one is one that I painted years ago. Tried to copy Darren. Although it is real cool looking, it is nothing like Darrens....

davenit sniperfrommars - No. I hardwire my straps onto my guitars with a large washer and a screw so they can never come off. Period. I take no chances. To many guitars on the ground in my past. LOL

That was the only thing taken off.

All of my necks are boring. All dot markers with the exception of the VWH of course. I change necks all the time so having a generic look works out well.

mike777 Great stuff, Dave. I still wanna see more! Thanks for the info. Great attention to depth-of-field too.

Entropy I'm sure the AQUASWIRL will be worth the wait!

Are those guitars stack in order of importance/comfort level?
The "lavaswirl" being you're #1,
the "puddingswirl" #2,
the 7vwh #3,
the "is that a UV77MC with dot inlays?" #4
and the flamey/quilty one #5?

I like the pictures and the swirls. Swirls aren't for everyone but there's certainly a large appreciative audience here.

Keep 'em coming. Any more poses in the works?
