GMC Replica

Ive been a lurker for years (literally years look at my join date) Finally I got the oppurtunity to buy my first JEM at a good price.
Figured I would share this..... GMC Custom Replica

The neck is the best part! I believe it was made by ET Guitars but I havent confirmed it yet. It feels like a wizard neck and the inlays are actual ablone and not vinyl sticker. Also Im pretty sure its ebony but can someone confirm that?

-Evo Neck/Bridge pickups
-Dimarzio Tone zone middle
-Edge low pro Trem

It still needs a full clear coat and a clear pick guard to make it perfect.
The swirl itself looks good but up close it is not perfect. It has multiple water spots and drips that were not dried properly after dipped.

It was done by a well known swirler who I'd rather not say because ive seen lots of arguments caused by bringing him up. However to my knowledge it was swirled years ago...... and regardless Im happy with it.

I wish I could take credit for this but I can not. The original owner did a fabulous job making this. I couldnt be happier with it. It plays and sounds like a dream. Just wanted to share.

Picks will be in next post (I have to have 10)

Re: GMC Replica

TZ in the middle ??? my preference goes to a single-coil for versatility

Re: GMC Replica

Thanks for all the support.

The tone zone is actually real nice and warm. Its good to have when I want to back off from the heat of the evo's. I dont think I have ever played pickups as hot as these...... Even the Jems Iv played at the stores

Ive never tried a tone zone Humbucker so I wouldnt be able to compare it.

Re: GMC Replica

That's a really nice replica. I would definitely get it clear coated sooner rather than later though.
