Congrats on the DNA! *Any chance you can get some pictures up? *And be sure to register it at www.abouttimedesigns.com!

Oh...and if you should still want a JEM90... * *I might just have one that could use a new home!\

Congrats again!

EXCELLENT swirl! *Definitely one of the better ones I've seen so far. *You should be proud! (But not so proud that it doesn't get played!) *

VERY nice!

I also found #60(?) but it had too much black and very little swirl. The dealer offered to sell it to me for dealer cost ! *Would anyone be offended if I got it and sent it back to ATD to be reswirled ?...Just a thought.

For some reason I had not seen #14...It is great ! *I passed on a few that had too much of just green and red (for my taste of course). The multi-color finish is what attracted me to my #148. Probably the reasons I like it are the same reasons that others might not.

After gazing at the swirls, I think I saw Elvis ?!? Thanks for the second place vote.

Just thought I'd mention that Long & McQuade (Bloor St. Toronto, Canada) has DNA #280, which seems to be slightly used and being re-sold, although I could be mistaken about that. Gave it a quick test-drive today - very surreal, as I've not held a multi-coloured Ibanez before. Nice-playing, nice-sounding. Price tagged at $4,250 CDN.
... for those interested.
(I've heard that a lot of them sold through there have actually gone into the States.)
