Re: custom jem finish

25ct in photocopying cost

How come you have a vine? Those dollar bills absolutely scream "disappearing pyramid"

Re: custom jem finish

interesting you are from the UK but choose US dollars.
+1 on the pyramids idea for the neck.

Re: custom jem finish

I can't beleive I'm saying this, but I agree the pyramids go better with this than a vine. The black vine does look pretty cool though and ya gotta love maple boards

WHOLY SMOKES BATMAN!!! i never thought i'd live to read this from you!!

baby steps. i see a pyramid neck in your future.

BTW - Jim, are you going for the new Jem or the RFR RG20th? put down a deposit yet on either?

the cost of the bills didn't seem relevant as i thought you used copies of the bills rather than actual bills. maybe i missed something?

Re: custom jem finish

I was thinking of doing the same in hardcore porn.Would that effect the resale value?
