    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
