It's been a long wait on this (Almost 4 years) but I'm glad my tastes haven't changed….. I've wanted a RE77MC since they came out however I wasn't too keen on spending 8K on one!!

Ernie put this up on his site in a collaboration with the great Herc Fede (RIP) and I fell in love with the swirl immediately, I figured I'd do a tribute with a couple of changes (Ebony board and SS frets)…. and also at the same time order a neck for my RG7620 Petrucci JPM7 Tribute. (That should be a month or 2 away!)

The guitar has turned out greater than I could have imagined…. Even though Ernie scalloped the last 4 frets without my request it turned out to be a master stroke as it again differentiates this to the original. The Blaze customs sound great and beefier than the blazes in my Greendot and the playability is excellent. Overall a fantastic tribute!!! I'm very happy with the end result.

Also thanks to Rich from Ibanez Rules for all of the Ibanez parts and Nick from the Axe Palace for the Blaze Customs

Also just an FYI this was the last of the tributes that ET guitars is doing as he is focusing on his own brand just in case you were wondering about getting a tribute from him

That is one of Herc's best PAW swirls ever!

If you ever get sick of her, you know who to PM.

Keep her safe and play the hell out of her!

I like the JPM100 P3 a bit more more pics!

Herc's swirls always seem to have too much yellow for my tastes, but still a gorgeous guitar nonetheless. Congrats on the NGD!

That's stunning JP. An absolutely gorgeous swirl. I love the yellow in it. I wish mine had a LOT more in it.

Maybe you'll do a vid for us to see it in action?

Oh my god

That's literally one of the best swirls I've ever seen. That's ****ing pristine!

That's really beautiful. It's making my mouth water, literally!

I've always wondered- these swirls always look like you the Laffy Taffy and nerds, I've always wondered if the swirls were a candy what they would taste like.

Wow. Perfect. Ebony with scalloped fretboard. That is all the best of Ibanez wrapped up into the perfect guitar. Very lucky to own that one. Congrats for sure.
