Re: Finding New Trem for JEM Project
Second that about Rich!
If you're scoping swirls on the Bay, stay clear of the bodies by Pearleguitars. I ordered one and it was a mess! No prep sanding was done, before he swirls the bodies. The body wood was junk (said it was alder I believe, but you could flick it and leave a dent! No lie). And the routes were sloppy. His swirl jobs are killer in the pix. A little sloppy on the drips, fish eyes, etc... and it needed a good clear coat.
Standing8Count on here can verify all of this.
But if you dip a turd in gold, it's still a turd!
He might be a good guy to have swirl an existing body though?
Just some useful info for you.
Good luck on your build!
