Herc PMC Almost Complete!

Hey guys, been awhile. I've been busy with life lately and haven't been able to focus on music much. However, late last year I bit the bullet and had Nate Perle build a custom neck for my Herc PMC. I absolutely can not be more stoked with how it turned out. Nate stayed in constant communication with me throughout the process and I couldn't say enough good things about the neck that arrived last week. Everything looks top notch! From the construction and fret work down to the headstock finishing, it's flawless. I was a bit apprehensive getting away from the traditional PMC pyramid colors, but am glad that I did.

Now I've just got to make a decal for the headstock and reassemble the hardware I had on it from the old super wizard. Here's some pictures! If you need a custom neck, I don't think you can go wrong with Nate.

Re: Herc PMC Almost Complete!

Thanks guys, I'm fortunate to have bought the swirl from Herc when I did. He was by far my favorite swirl artist when it comes to PMC's. Wish I would have bought more now!

Re: Herc PMC Almost Complete!

How do you like the feel of the neck, it's dimensions, etc compared to a true Ibanez?

Re: Herc PMC Almost Complete!

I think I actually prefer this colour scheme with the pink, purple and orange pyramids looking forward to seeing it in its completely finished state!
