Re: JEM inspired display case project

The LED's came in today, so I have to post this very cool pic. This is with the door open showing the light strips.

These look awesome, thanks for the idea of LED strip tape.

Re: JEM inspired display case project

when I started reading this thread, I couldn't picture it in my mind, clearly you could though, as it turned out amazing. Congrats on the new centerpiece.

Re: JEM inspired display case project

Thanks. I never did post any more pics since the last. I decided to do a 270 deg panorama of my game room since I could never fit all in one pic. So, here's mancave with it as the center piece.



I moved my '89 RG to the same wall now.

I do love this JEM, and I've read about comparisons of JEM to RG's. I do have to admit the 89 RG570 is pretty close. Both made in Japan, both original Edge Trems back then, and I installed Dimarzio Pickups in the RG.

Re: JEM inspired display case project

Yeah Paul, its original. I'm actually 1 of the top 10 donkey kong players in the world, and play it often. I'm always going for the world record. In fact I'm about to play right now, and stream

Nooooo way?!? I saw King of Kong a couple years ago and was blown away, I'm assuming you have seen it.

Re: JEM inspired display case project

Thanks Giabrone

This was a weird Deja Vu seeing this today. Turns out this company that makes these trapezoid cases had a spot in Vintage Guitar Magazine, and the cover of the magazine has Steve w/ a JEM guitar (The cases had nothing to do with the JEM). I've never seen the magazine or the cases before I started my project, but just weird seeing the connection of these two.
