Gabe's Custom Jem
[evil mode] Ha Ha! *I'll never tell you the secret about my gold bar! *Never! *Never! *Never! *Ha ha ha ha! [/evil mode]
Seriously though, the bar is simply foil plated for the effect of show only, not for playability. *The gold will wear of in a matter of a couple hours of play. *It was just an experiment. *I do plan on making my own bars with a home milling machine though.
Thanks for the kind comments about the guitar. *It will never be that way again, however. *I've taken the guitar apart. *The body is from Jem10 #605 which I am selling. *I've fully restored the Jem10 now. *The neck in the picture is now in the hands of Jon Harper and he's making a rear routed Jem style body for me. *The body will have a H-H config and a 3-way switch below the neck pickup. *The body will be swirled in mostly black with a little white and gold. *I will have the body bound (depending on how much black there is). *I already purchased a Sustainiac Steath Plus with a white upper coil (driver) and black lower coil (dummy). *I'm ordering a breed with a black upper coil and white lower coil. *The hardware will be all gold.
Can't wait for this this to get done! *It's 2 years in the making!
