Search "2011 GIBSON LES PAUL STUDIO "FLOOD" ONLY 150 MADE...LIMITED EDITION DISCONTINUED"
on your most obvious of auction sites and you'll see probably the worst looking swirl ever.
I stumbled upon it doing some price verification for another axe I was interested in, and saw this. It looks more like someone's kid used fingerpaints to make this paint job. Ick.

As I recall those were made to commemorate the devastating Nashville flood that happened a few years ago. It was supposed to look like the water and paint that flooded the factory.

There are some aftermarket swirls that have been truly awful :( they're by folks who 'claim' to be professional, but ...

I like the blue, but it would look much better on a super strat than an LP....
LP's just don't look right with swirls IMO

more like i'd try her on for size.

Gibson has had some cool LP ideas and some not so cool. I give them credit for at least trying unique finishes. The same can't be said for some other companies.

I actually thought the voodoo line was a cool idea. I would have liked to see it in a different color combo but the red black idea was cool.

I like anything different, but that green swirl looks horrendous.
I kinda like the Dusk Tiger. I am not a fan of Swift's music, but She'd make a great stand for that guitar in my studio!

Don't attack me... I like these. My epiphone LP is in blue burst and I would love it even more if it had that blue "swirl".
