New custom build 77PMC

I've ordered a PMC swirl body from Alan at OOTS and I'm going to get a neck custom made. Its still early days and but Ive been messing around on photoshop and here's the result after a bit of cut and pasting...

Re: New custom build 77PMC

I'm still trying to choose between purple-green-purple pups or with pink in the middle

Re: New custom build 77PMC

I think you should do purple pink humbuckers with a purple single coil.

There is already a lot of green in the body so no need to emphasize it anymore using the other colors will bring it out more.

Re: New custom build 77PMC

this is a killer PMC, and one of Al's best swirls overall to me. It looks nothing like the original PMC's but it is a hundred times better.
And I'll go with the green knobs and pickup. You will find it's next to impposible to get a purple single coil cover that will fit a dimarzio single. Dimarzio does not make them anymore and other replacments you can find on eBay will not fit. I know since I needed one about a year ago.

Yeah, I agree, I think not so much of a PMC but more of hybrid swirl which reminds me of a cross between the PMC and a PAW. I'm not really that much of a fan of the PMC swirls mainly because most of the swirls Ive seen look washed out and dull (at least in the photos anyway, Ive never seen one in real life).

I've given up on looking for purple single pup covers, and Alan says pretty much what you said. The closest thing Ive found on the web is purple covers for rails. Heres a couple of other color combos:


(Probably too much green on that one)

Re: New custom build 77PMC

... I prefer the green and pink... Green humbuckers and purple single.


Just my opinion.

Re: New custom build 77PMC

I think the Green/pink/Green look the most at home in that body. I went with Purple/pink/purple in my Herc pmc. If you need any help let me know.

Re: New custom build 77PMC

Hey Gorija, thats a nice swirl, the purple humbuckers go really well with that swirl.
For my project I'm gonna either go with purple/green or purple/pink. Ive ordered a pup cover so I can try out both color combinations.

Where did you get the screws to direct mount the pups to the body? Also what did you use to adjust the pup height - foam padding?

Re: New custom build 77PMC

On a side note I just thought, how about a flamed maple neck, Im not sure how the disappearing pyramids would go with that. If anyone has a flamed maple neck with pyramids, I would love to see some piccies!
