Custom RootBeer Jem

This was a White Jem. Stripped, Stained, Cleared. Now it's Root Beer.

Me too! Especially that one! Maybe you should call it "Brown Cow Jem."

That looks very good! If someone told me "I'm going to strip and stain a WH", I'd say "nooooooo!". But that looks awesome!!!

Re: Custom RootBeer Jem

That is one of the nicest customs I have seen in a long time. Terrific job!

Did you do this yourself? What made you strip the white back in the first place? I wouldn't have the guts to do this unless there was damage that I wanted to cover over. Was it banged up or did you just want something different?
