Talking Herc Swirls By Max

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:

http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f15/he...irl-90639.html

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!

Ignoring all the stuff written already on these tribute guitars, that's a great collection. The swirls are so tasteful to my eye - really pleased for you. Nice amps also...

That's a great looking swirl and an interesting colour choice for the vine!

Beautyful guitar with an appealing swirl (I'm no swirl fan, most of them look too .... hectic).

I like the red one better, the colors are more harmonic.

Re: Herc Swirls By Max

That looks great! I've got a Jem body in need of a swirl and I'd love to get Herc to do one for me. I'd swap the green and the yellow in the swirl, but otherwise I love it!

Beautiful guitar!! That pink is really amazing in person. I can't seem to get my photos to do it justice. My Herc pmc will be done by next week!! Also if you don't mind me asking, why no pickguard?

Thanks!
Pics don't really do this one justice either.

Re the pickguard I decided I preferred the look of the guitar without one.
I generally remove them from most of my Guitars where possible.
