Building a JEM RPG by RafaPG

Hello.
DaniJem recommended me this forum.
I'm a luthier from Andalousia (Spain) and I'm builing some JEM necks and bodies, I'm also building a full JEM to myself.
I will try to post pics as soon as I'm building the guitar.

Here are the woods:
Body: Basswood
Neck: Flamed maple
Fingerboard: Ebony (tree of life inlay)

Electronics:
JEM777 wirings with some push pull selectors.
DiMarzio evolution bridge and neck
DiMarzio Virtual Vintage

The idea is a, let's say "normal" jem, maybe in white and pickguard in motherofpearl as Steve Vai's, I don't know exactly the color, i suppose I will decide it while i build it.

I will try to send pics on another post.
Kind regards and hello to everyboy. I will be pleased if you wellcome me.

Re: Building a JEM RPG by RafaPG

Those are the lumbers of basswood which the body come from, they're not still glued. I use Titebond classic to this job






Here you can see the clamping time and some drops of titebond.
Which glue do you use in this process?
