Here are a few pics of my 2nd Herc Swirl built for me by Max at Cottam Guitars.
Some of you may recall my previous thread about the first:
Enjoy the pics but I would like to comment on the previous thread started by Max which I did not notice until it had been closed.
I bought the body direct from Herc & I approached Max & asked if he would build a Guitar around it.
He agreed & it was done precisely to MY spec for MY use & will NEVER be sold on.
I would also like to add that I pretty much paid only the cost of the parts so Max has made almost no profit from it! Definitely not really a commensurate payment for the time & trouble he spent on it!
As for the comments in the aforementioned thread about breach of Ibanez Copyright to be honest in my opinion at least there are more important things going on in the world about which we should maybe show our indignation than a single custom built Tribute Guitar which purports to be nothing more than that.
I do wonder however how many of those who objected in the previous thread started by Max have illegal music or software on the PC's & Laptops? I am willing to bet a few of you at least?
Anyway both these Guitars from Max are fantastic! In the past I have also owned a Jem7VWH & all I can say is that these Guitars by Max are every bit as good as that was...... if not better!
