UV 77 RE build

I've been wanting a swirl for a while now and my favorite is the UV77 RE series. I had been flirting with the idea of getting a custom and decided to revisit ET guitars.... i'm glad I did! GAS immediately took over when I seen this Herc swirl in stock, it's a beauty!

Yep, I bought it!!

I'm also going to finish off the JPM 7 that I have which needs a new neck. I've gone with an Ebony fretboard and offset abalone inlays on that one, it will make a nice pair with my JPM 90th!

I'm also going to get a Universe neck made up as well with a neon disappearing inlay for the Herc body. Again i've gone with an ebony fretboard!!! I'll post full neck specs shortly!

Freaking awesome!! Herc's really narrowed swirling down to a science this past year or so. Wait until you see it in person!! I about pee'd myself seeing mine for the first time haha.

Probably building the neck, ordering all parts, putting it all together, plus setup.
