    Yes, I concur. I'm trying to square things away so I can get my 7 string PAW going with him.

    Seriously tempted to buy an RGD and have you give it a black and hot pink swirl.

    Here's what james had to say about them: They look SUPER awesome in person and the clear is completely like factory, FREAKIN' GLASS man! GLASS!

    James traded me a red/black OOTs body as partial payment for the job. It had no clear coat on it and I just couldn't stand to see it sit there and not becone a whole guitar so I bought a 1570 for it and this was the end result:

    I've seen it around the forums too but I don't think anyone realizes I did the actual build.

    +1 reference for Livewire from me as well.

    Though we haven't actually launched a project yet, Michael has taken a good chunk of time to chat via phone and email about my ideas for a possible RG1527 refinish with carbon fiber.

    It's the kind of customer service you don't always get in this industry.

    (Michael: Finally procured a used 1527 for said project, so I may be contacting you again once it arrives here)

    That body was swirled by Out of this Swirled .I got it as a partial payment for the other jobs that I posted above it. I only clear coated and assembled it. The guitars above it are my swirls.

    Edit 11/16-SOLD to our friend in the UK.



    New Swirl RG 7620 REMC PAW.
    Just completed the newest 7 string swirl.
    I installed green dot inlays and scalloped the last 4 frets. I also cut a monkey grip in the body
    The swirl was done here at Livewire Guitars.
    This one isn't spoken for so it is available for sale for just $995 plus shipping. It also comes with a UV1000C case for free!
    I will add some more pictures tomorrow.

    Man, your swirls look amazing! I really like the way the clear coat makes them look. It's like the have this incredibly crafted layer of smooth glass on them lol

    Swirls are gorgeous. Just curious... do you have any pics/examples of non-swirl work? I don't mean just solids, metallics, etc... I'm thinking any other unique projects you might've done? Some people are into snakeskin, textured finishes, carbon fiber, etc.

    Keep postin'. Love your stuff.
