my new baby

Just got this beauty this week. Supposedly it is a Herc Fede swirl, and i don't know if this was originally a Jem that was modified, or a completely made custom guitar. I absolutely love the pyramid inlays with the flames around them!!!











This is the best way to start a new year!!!!!!!!
peace

Re: my new baby

Gorgeous guitar and absolutely killer swirl - I'm pretty sure it is a Herc Fede as I already had pictures of this guitar and it's in a folder on my pc as one of Hercs.
Congratulations :-)

Re: my new baby

Thanks people!!!!
Now i just have to get used to dealing with a floating trem again, as it's been a while...

Does anyone have any advice for caring for unfinished necks? This is the first one i've owned. Thanks

Re: my new baby

next time you change the strings you can pull the neck and check the neck pocket on the body and neck to see if it is/was a production Jem or copy.
i saw that one at auction and really dug the inlays - very cool, enjoy!

Re: my new baby

Are those actual inlays or painted on?
Just curious. I'd heard that Herc painted stuff on and never actually inlayed.

As far as i can tell, they are actual inlays. If you run your finger over them, you feel the slightest "dip" from the fingerboard to the inlay. I'm not 100% positive though.
