Re: Customized JEM7VWH
^^^^ I changed out the hardware to Powder cosmo so I could store the gold and keep it from pitting. The guitar gets used regularly. The pups were changed (not covers) while I was changing the bridge pup to an Evo II, so I figured replace all the pups and get some colored bobbins too as opposed to just black. The color scheme came based on the vine inlays..... the Abalone has great coloring (lots of blue and green) hence the pickguard selection. Also all screws were replaced with stainless steel to avoid rusting.
I wasn't really "keen" on the pickguard at first but it has grown on me. Anyway..... the guitar is a "player" and quite the workhorse. The VSBL, that's my second fav. JEM! But the ones with the EP as opposed to the LP bridge.
I have a RG-1570 that's a work in progress JEM clone..... I was going to do a swirl, but I think I'm going to do a sparkle like a VSBL but in red with simple abalone dot inlays and 6105 frets.
Thanks for the input though. She's not everyone's "cup-o-tea", but what the hay....... That's the point, you can take any guitar and make it your own personal statement aesthetically. It's the statement you make musically that really counts though.
