Epic Ibanez Jem DNA Darren Johansson Swirl Inspired Collectors Edition 11oz Mug - The Perfect Gift + Worldwide Shipping
Inspired by the swirling artwork of About Time Designs and Darren Johansson these swirls mugs are created using a dye sublimation technique and taken from an actual DNA limited edition Ibanez Jem.
Based on the design of the legendary DNA which was made with Steve Vai's own blood in the red paint. Freaky and unique guitar. 300 guitars were made but every one is different because of the unique swirl pattern. They were swirled by Darren Johansen of About Time Designs and assisted by DNA concept creator Jim Donahue. At great expense Ibanez flew Darren and all his equipment to Japan for the project that has produced some of the most beautiful guitars ever painted. To get the DNA Steve Vai himself donated a couple pints of blood to be swirled and Darren mixed it liberally. (The blood actually had to be smuggled into Japan because of importation laws) Locked away in a special enclosed “private” section of the factory Darren was assisted by friend and DNA concept creator Jim Donahue. For 10 days they practiced their magic with incredible results.The most notable aspect is the color, as Vai added his DNA (blood) to the mixture of the paint. The painter of the guitar, Darren Michaels/Darren Johansen of ATD (About Time Designs), stated on Jemsite.com, "For the record if you own a DNA you have a good amount of the "DNA". The "blood red" paint that I mixed was mixed at a ratio of approximately 8:1 [paint:blood] so the content is quite high. There had to be pigment mixed into the paint to hold it onto the guitar as well as a carrier”. The guitars were made in the year 2000, represented in the model series, JEM2KDNA (2000).
