WTB Herc Fede body

Looking for the right Herc Fede swirled body for a project. I would prefer an original Ibanez body or a dead accurate clone. Wood, colors used, cleared or not are all debatable. I might even go for a complete guitar depending of course.

Send me what you might have or point me towards classifieds you know about, please.

Thank you

Damn, beautiful guitar. That one is not for me, but you should have no trouble selling it.

Re: WTB Herc Fede body

I am so out of the loop on Ibanez... I had no idea Alan had stopped doing swirls, but I would consider an OOTS body as well.

I do not want anything that has a monkey grip, please.

Re: WTB Herc Fede body

Who is left that does a quality swirl job and not a total flake?

Re: WTB Herc Fede body

Yeah, I rarely see Herc's stuff come up anymore. Most of them are hoarded away I guess.

Here are some options (examples of their swirls shown):
Example Swirl Paint
In Stock Bodies - 6 String Bodies - Perle Guitars

You could also search for Livewire, he did some cool stuff for a few years.

Rich Fey is swirling again. He's had a few swirled and cleared bodies for sale on ebay recently.

Thank you for the links. I have seen both of those painter's work before, but it is not what I am looking for. Much too busy.

Herc had the touch, but I foolishly kept putting it off (not that Herc was the most reliable) and now it may be too late.

Alan did some great ones, and I sent him a couple emails, but he never replied (even to say bugger off).

This is an example of what I am thinking (PMC with no grip)

Re: WTB Herc Fede body

Yeah, Herc did amazing swirls! Based on your link, you may like Livewire. He's no longer active but you could set an autosearch in ebay for ("Herc Fede",Livewire) swirl and you may get an email every few months.
