Just thought I'd share some pics of the Jem I am putting together. I had the body built and sprayed by Martin Sims over here in England. I would highly recommend him, his work is excellent & he had great communication throughout the build. The neck is from a 555, but I am going to get the fingerboard replaced with ebony and the full vine inlay. I have recently fitted the Roland GK midi pickup, and all other switches, pots etc... Just need to get round to buying the mag pups, trem, & machine heads when I've got the cash.....
Specs (when finished!):
Swamp Ash body
Mastergrade quilt maple top
Blue to black tinted burst with faux binding
Maple neck with Ebony board
3 tone vine inlay (blues)
Roland GK Hex pickup
Heres some pics:
This is after the GK Install (more wiring to be done, but i need the evos first)
Here is my not very good looking mock up of my idea for the vine, made of three shades of blue fading up the neck:
Hope some of you like it, I think it will be awesome when it's finished....
