A Fanatic's FIRST JEM

At 16 years old, Im am happy to show off my first Jem! I swirled and build the guitar myself. The neck is from Chris Woods and the body made by Deep 6. Wired with Evolution pickups and S1 mid. I am not at home so this is the only pic I have ATM. It is the red one. This guitar has everything a Jem does, nothing less. I got lazy and didn't work on for a while but worked hard this past week to get it running. This guitar is really nothing short of amazing! It isn't my best swirl but it goes great with the neck.

Re: A Fanatic's FIRST JEM

Very nice, I particularly like the red and black swirl. Well done. Just out of curiosity, did you use borax or that carageaan product on the water before adding the paint or did you jsut apply the paint directly onto the water?
