Smile Brainstorm JEM ideas

The BSB got me thinking today. I want to hear about totally NEW, never seen before JEM ideas, bodies, inlays, paint jobs, stains, woods, whatever you can think of that is totally NEW!

Re: Brainstorm JEM ideas

Maybe something similar to the gibson robot... A Special edition Jem that can tune itself and all that jazz. I know lots of people will hate me for this, but that would be kind of cool to see!

I'd love to see how you could do that with a floating trem...

A solid color acrylic like the BC Rich Warlocks that came out a few years back; not swirl nor clear.

Re: Brainstorm JEM ideas

i said once and will say again:
transparent acrilic body, swirled on the back ONLY.
so you can see the swirl THROUGH the body.
i bet you could see maybe 2 complete diferent swirls, who knows?

Re: Brainstorm JEM ideas

There's never been a red Jem. Some kind of red Jem with black pickguard, red pickups, yellow knobs, orange switch tip, red/orange/yellow pyramids and a black headstock with a red logo.

Some kind of a figured maple Jem would be cool as well.

A throwback Jem of sorts. A modern version with this Tom Anderson graphic.
This being the guitar that "Skyscraper" was recorded with...

Re: Brainstorm JEM ideas

Still looking for a JEM with the "hologram" finish that will change between DY, SK and LNG depending on the angle, including pickup covers.

Maybe two bolt-like bars that fix the trem in its neutral position during the tuning, then release when its done (a few seconds later). It would stop the tension of one string putting the others out becuse the trem couldn't move.

Actually, they could do that with non-robot JEMs too... just a manually operated version
