I dont think Herc would run off with anyones cash or guitar . I think he is a stand up guy and if he's having some problems im sure He will do the right thing as soon as he is able . I hope he is o.k. and wish him the best .
the work being done does take time and with life in general going on, it's hard to keep on schedule sometimes . Im sure you will be contacted and when you get your work back very happy with the results .
