Building a Jem Clone (pix)

Re-doing this thread-
This is my Jem clone done by Chris at HotRod6Strings. He was an Ibanez luthier building USA Customs in CA.
RG770 neck and all Ibby hardware with CTS pots and switches. Orange Drop capacitors. Custom-ordered purple/green DiMarzio Evolution's.
Purple knobs thanks to SirShredsalot. The colors jump off this one -almost DNA-ish.




I played it at last night's gig in NY. Never went out of tune, sounded strong and fat through the Marshall DSL 100 stack.
