Customizing a JEM777vbk

Im thinking about changing the pickguard and color of the pickups on a jem777vbk. *I think i might go with the JEM7dbk pickguard, to replace the black one, and then might switch to black pickups...I donno, i just wanted to see what everyone else would like to see...

* * Go Here for swirl paint job prices. *IMHO Darren is the best swirlist. *I don't know how much it would cost though because I'm not sure exactly how many colors are in the green multicolor swirls
* * *If you get that done to your VBK let me know , actually I'd like to see any of the Mods you do to it. Does anyone know of a picture of a VBK that has been swirled?

Mine is a 4-color swirled VBK done by Herc Fede. *He no longer does swirl job. *Darren (ATD) is excellent choice so contact him for availability, he is typically swamped.

GMC is only green and black but I've seen a bit of white (prime or base color) as well. *Darren can make a front cavity plate cover and do a full body swirl. *With a clear pickguard it would look like the original.
