I got this guitar from Jeff and changed a few things.
I put a clear pickguard on it and changed out the 5 way switch for a VLX53 with a blue switch tip.

I put 10s on it and made a few adjustments.
The guitar looks and plays great!

It has a Tone Zone in the bridge, EVO single in the middle and an Air Norton in the neck position.

Awesome! That one looks killer. I always liked those BMC´s ever since an early member did a custom one with a ATD swirl.

Looks great! I thought that guitar always needed a clear guard. What do you think of Her'c swirl?

Also, where did you get the blue switch tip? I'm trying to dig up a set of blue knobs for my guitar that Livewire has.

The swirl looks even better in person!
I didn't do anything to the pics.

I remember when he was building that guitar. I think he had a thread asking which inlays he should use. I said vines, but it's hard to argue with the results.

Congrats, sebastian.

She is a beauty!!!! Herc did an amazing job on the swirl and it looks great in the sun!!!! The clear guard and blue switch tip look awesome. The only reason I did not do the pickguard is I was afraid to drill holes into the body. :) As far as the inlays, I never really liked the vines but love the pyramids so they won out.

Drags, there comes a time when all things have outlived their purpose, it had outlived mine but will be cared for and loved I'm sure.

The body is Alder.

Enjoy her man, it was a long process in both building her, and letting her go. :)

Jeff

Thanks Jeff, I'll take good care of her.
I even bought a nice Ibanez case for her.
This guitar will stay with me for many years to come.

Oh my god...that is simply beautiful you lucky bastard.

This is giving me tonnes of ideas for my next project as I just picked up an original BFP neck and pickups off evil bay.

I while back I wanted to buy this guitar from Jeff and he decided to keep it.
So I thought, why not have a BMC made?
So, I started a BMC project.
The body is almost done.
It's a Blue, Black and White swirl done by Livewire Guitars.
