Smile Building a Jem

So in december of last year, i embarked on my first guitar build. I had wanted a jem for so long and decided "if i cant afford one in the store, ill make it!" Turns out its gonna cost about the same, but the guitar is gonna be soooooo sexy ; ) I originally started out trying to make a carbon copy Jem7wvh, and for the most part it will be, but with a few tweaks.....

pearl looking knobs on the tuners

gold tone and volume pot knobs with pearl tops

gold ibanez logo

set of black evolution pickups H-S-H

and the best part, the body and headstock will be a solid dark red with a high gloss finish!

heres the best image i can find to aproximate the color:

Please let me know what you think!

Thanks,

-Matt
