GREAT JOB - congrats.
unfortunately dimarzio green knobs are not the same colour as the pickup bobbins in my experience.

Re: GMC build

I think (baring in mind that it's my opinion) that it's quite probably THE best looking / coolest Jem ever made.

Awesome

Re: GMC build

Thanks for all the comments guys. I agree about the knobs, can you still get proper fluro ones - NOS painted ones or modern equivalent?
Oh and it makes noise

Re: GMC build

great to hear it !
nice noodling mate - you can buy NOS from Rich - OR - you can spray them yourself and use a very fine permanent pen for the numbers
I got some from univeraljems a while back, they were pretty good but the paint coverage was a bit patchy.

Re: GMC build

This thread is two years old. Check out the Tech Section there are a bunch of threads about swirling there.
