Re: Herc Fede BMC - Almost Done..

Paint work and pyramids look amazing! But where is the body from? The neck looks like it's sitting way too high? I just looked at my RG3120 and you should only be able to see a tiny but of neck between the fingerboard and the body.

Looks like it may be sitting high, but not really by much...

Re: Herc Fede BMC - Almost Done..

Awesome guys thank you very much...

If its the case where the neck rests too high my luthier should be able to correct that. I think with my previous swirl a couple years back I think it was the same case along with the neck being too big to fit into the pocket.


I have all the parts except for a couple of things, I'll reveal all that when its all put together. I had this vision for this guitar since day one..

The pyramids came out good. There are some tiny imperfections but that stuff never bothers me unless its unplayable.. I love the small imperfections. My other swirl clearcoat isn't perfect but small things like that doesn't matter if the guitar plays and sounds great..

Speaking of sounding great.....

The only advice I need right now is pickups.


The middle pick up I'm going for the Area 58


I'm torn with either Breed bridge and Neck OR

Paf Pro Bridge and Neck

Tone Zone Bridge and Air Norton Neck


I'm all set with Evo's since my other swirl has an Evo 2 in the Bridge, which I do love but I think there is no point in having 2 of the same guitars sound alike.

This one I'm thinking more on the lines of Les Paul kinda tone.

Re: Herc Fede BMC - Almost Done..

I would say breeds, but I don't know if that would match a Les Paul vibe.

The project looks cool BTW
