Dream JEM - that silly little game again ;)

OK guys - I had too much spare time this weekend and instead of practicing I decided to figure out all the different options that have been available on the JEM range. Then I thought it might be fun to see what people's dream JEM would look like if they used only the features that have previously appeared on a production JEM.

Here is the list....

Yeah but say you're limited to a finish already existing on the JEMs from my initial list... which would you pick then ?

I'd just like the 'standard' Jems but slightly different

Jem BSB *but with blue vine inlay on maple fret board
Jen 7wh but in black keep the white scratchplate for a strat look
Jem PBK with ebony fretboard and AANJ
Jem Floral with Ebony and AANJ
Jen DBK with vine inlay and the hardware off BSB

A SRV 'beat up' Jem would be cool
swamp ash body sunburst and beat
front rout black guard white PUPS (Note Evos would have to be made single coil sized just for the look)
chrome lefty whammy
Ebony fret board and vines
Large white VAI on scratchplate

I'd like to see a production Jem with a maple fretboard - maybe a DBK evolution to PDBK with maple fretboard and "mirror" pyramid inlays.

Since we have learned the DNA (coolest Jem IMO) was not made for the player.

The dream Jem would be something with COLOR!!!!!! *Swirls would be by far my first Choice, But since that will not happen. Point Blank!!! * COLORS!!!

Color with something new to the design, Black and white Jems are long over due on being quite boring.

Yet it's all Just a Dream?

late!!!

All righty lets take it up a notch.... I was telling Rich that Ibanez should release a Jem with a mirror ball front. *Like the model Paul Stanley has that looks like a busted up mirror! *Holy crap, batman,,,,can you imagine that on stage! *I saw Paul Stanley using that guitar at cobo hall in Detroit! *Wow, it just cut through the smoke and through light everywhere! *As far as inlays????? I would think that mirrored pyramids or even a vine would just rock!
