For this episode of Lax County Choppers, the guys at Stylin Strings got a unique request from a call in customer. Maddy Jacobs from Forest, Virginia wanted to get her boyfriend Landon Moore a sweet custom stick for Christmas. She knew he had ordered from SS before so she went covert and had SS pull what head he had purchased in the past which turned out to be an STX Proton with a Stylin Strings favorite Mesh-X pocket.
Maddy knew Landon had a Brine Redrum Swizzbeat shaft he loved so she outlined the creative for SS to match that shaft. This was all Dustin needed to come up with a blood splattered, dripping, Mikey Powell logo heart beat, mash up of a stick.
The head was dyed a light grey first, then the swizzbeat pattern was applied to the top of the head and the bottom left side. Then the head was dyed red. That’s when the fun began. The blood splats and drips were strategically placed on random spots on the head. Then a spray technique was applied to certain areas over the stickers. The Redrum text on the shaft was matched as close as possible from was of SS’s stock sticker fonts making sure the D and the R were reversed. Four MP logos were also dyed red to match the shaft one on the top, one on the bottom and two housing the SS ballstop.
Once the head was prepped it was dipped black and peeled to reveal another sick dye from the SS DYE LAB. But, the job wasn’t complete, they had to match the dye with a Mesh-X pocket. Black leathers, sidewall, soft mesh, coils, and shooting strings kept the pocket murdered out so you focused more on the dye. Just some grey trad middle channels were added to match the Swizzbeat vibe.
That concludes another full custom job from the guys at www.StylinStrings.com, and be sure to Follow SS on their facebook page for special deals and exclusive stick releases.
