Hi Jemsiters! It's been a while...
So, I know I'm probably still known round here as "that Brit guy that set fire to a Jem
", but I have a new Jem project on the go - I'm building a clone, and I want the body swirled, and I'm coming to the fount of knowledge that is the JS forum for recommendations.
Here's a tumblr I set up to keep track of the project if you're interested: http://projectjem.tumblr.com
Short version: I'm getting a body and neck from Nate Perle, and I want the body swirled in black and white only - who do I go to?
Herc Fede? Nope, he quit.
OOTS? Nope, they quit.
Darren J? His site still appears to be closed.
B&A Guitars in Israel? Nope, I emailed them and Avi says they're shut at the moment.
Perle himself? Maybe... though when he had some B&W swirl
photos on his site a little while back, they didn't inspire confidence. They were more black/cream or black/off-white, and that's no good to me. (Apologies if you're reading this, Nate... it's possible I just saw a one off swirl that was meant to be black/cream...)
Still, he's the most convenient answer, so I may just go with him - but I wanted to ask here in case I'm missing out any obvious other players or new guys that might be just who I'm after.
My ideal swirl is this: http://www.bnaguitars.com/bnw04.html
Can you help me, Jemsite?
Hope you're well, love to the family, etc.
