Finally back to work on, JEM911USA check it out!!!!!!

Here she is so far, the sides will be bursted in a dark blue, and the inlay will be the red white and blue pyramids. I couldn't make the pics small enough (don't have a program on this computer for that) so here is a link to the page with the pics!!!!!!

Actually, why don't you sell me the guitar right now as is??

I'm totally serious. I am playing a 911 memorial and this thing would be perfect! I am flying to NY and playing at ground zero in about 3 weeks (thanksgiving time). It will be televised, but I'm not sure if I will be on TV or not. Please consider it. If you don't want to sell it...maybe I could rent it or something? My closest thing so far is a LP style with the red, white, and blue flag but it plays like crap and doesn't stay in tune for anything! Especially outside in cold whether.

I can't, it's nowhere near done, it doesn't even have clear coat on it yet. I really don't want to sell this though, it's a very personal tribute to me as two of my best friends died that day.

I will be building another one of these, but not right now, if you had a body you wanted done, and could fed ex it to me overnight right away, I could have a body ready for you by then, not polished out, but cleared, you could use it and then send it back to me for polishing, but you'd be paying alot for the shipping to fed ex it.

A severely demented person would say they didn't like it.

That is really REALLY cool!

That's stunning. I'm not american and I want one too!!!

As far as inlays go, I'd have to say go with the pyramids rather than the vine I think the colour combination would work better.

Personally though I'd go for pearloid/silver stars as the inlay, keep up the stars and stripes theme and as they're a bit more sublte they'd not take away from the graphic finish.
