    Hi All, Ranzz does not come here often so with his permission I'm posting pics of the swirl he just got from me. We had a great time together and became good friends through the whole process. Ranzz was kind enough to let me experiment with new materials and swirling technics so it took alot...

    Hi all; just thought I'd share the final results. I started this project back in November and couldn't have gotten here from there w/o the artistry, craftsmanship, knowledge and expertise of: - Herc Fede (Fede Designs), a proud new father, provided the body and swirled another masterpiece...

    After much consideration I decided on a DNA swirl for my 777SK. Just got everything back... As shown in the photo, I had a plate made to mount the controls and will use an NOS clear pickguard (thanks Rich!) BEFORE AFTER

    So I bought a DNA swirl from perleguitars on the bay and loved it. I wanted to do a Strat & Tele swirl and asked him if I could send him some Warmoth bodies and he said no problem. I just got the pics back today (only a 2 week turnaround) and I must say, they look amazing!!! I'm very pleased...

    Hey guys, as some of you may remember I said the shots of #234 were just temporally and I would make some better Pics of her. Well here they are, I thought you ppl. might enjoy looking at them. I've got some probs to fix with the font/html code, but I'm now to tired to fix it!.. I've made over...

    I'm calling this project "PMC-inspired" since I know it won't be right, I just enjoy the look of those guitars and figure I might as well enjoy what I got... So here is my 91 Jem777SK "collection of parts". I got it in boxes and in a horribly-repainted state. Some people did not like the...

    Hey guys, my DNA has finally landed, straight from Paris! (Thanks Jean, again, again and again !!!) For this one I had to sale my whole collection, there was JEM77FP 15th, RG550DY (87), RG20th RFR, RGT2020SOL, RG3070GN. But when I opened the case I knew it was worth it! I never have seen a...

    Have a look at 150208532067. I recently bought on similar, it is swirl painted but basically not sanded adequately before being dipped, plus the routing is crude, with plenty of wood tear out. The dimensions are ok, but despite being painted they are no way well enough finnished to move to...

    Well, she finally arrived. I will say without a doubt she is in absolutely amazing condition, and perfectly set up. A joy to play. She is my first 7 string ever, and the swirl on her is drop dead stunning in person. I just got her and am in the middle of a dinner party, but here are a few quick...

    Ok, so you all may know that I'm selling all my Jems and all that. Well, the wife has noticed that I've been all sad and depressed about selling my Jems and said that whenever a decent deal on a swirl or dna came up, I should get it. Well *bay # 130168090553 came up, and while $5200 is pricey...

    I have just recieved my first ever swirl. The DNA. Wow, I can't stop looking at the swirl, I was slightly put off by the grey part of the swirl in photos and wondered wether I had paid too much but believe me when you see this guitar in person you would love it and I feel it's worth every penny...

    Hi all, just done these 2 and I'm not sure of what to think. The patterns are nice but I'm testing a new brand of paint and the shades look different then what I'm used to. The one with the paw combo makes me think of strawberry banana flavour ice cream. The pmc is better but still I thought...

    Hi everyone, Just want to let you know that I am no longer taking custom orders. I'd like to thank all my customers since I've been in business, I haven't had any dissatisfied or stroppy customers, you've all been great. I've just decided that I'm not happy doing guitars as my main business...
