NGD - Jem 777VBK - Herc Fede swirl

Hey, this beauty arrived yesterday and became the latest member of the guitar family. Its a 1990 Jem 777VBK that was later swirled (in 2007) by the great and late Herc, a fabolous profesional. The swirl is deep and nice

That is killer beautiful! Congratulations!!
Question - is that the original body converted (filled) to direct mount or non original body?

Either way, I love it.

Very nice! I'm guessing this is an aftermarket body with some 777VBK donor parts. I'd guess that the middle pickup and knob set are from the VBK. Based on the different green, I'd say the humbuckers are new.

Herc is the man that swirled it and he passed away a month or so ago due health issues. Very unfortunate as the man put out some great swirls.

Anyways, looks great OP!

Thank you. I knew who he was, but was not aware of his passing. Sad news.

Takin a Ride, I believe you are right, it all seems that the neck, middle pickup, hardware and neck plate are original to the VBK, but the body I would guess is aftermarket. I was told by the previous owner that both humbuckers are Evolution.
I always wanted a Herc swirl Jem!
