I've been wanting to get a JEM ever since I layed my eyes on one when I was buying my first guitar, but now i'm a little more experienced in what guitars are about i've come to the conclusion that I really don't want to get a JEM but I want to get a "JEM".
By that I mean I've come across this really nice bloke on the internet called Herc Fade, basically I buy an RG??? and he does his magic on the paint job and grip thing and then I replace the pickups with what ever I want, Evo's maybe, and there I have a JEM and save my self around £400, ok so it doesn't have the name on the head stock but it's got the image, which is what I like about the JEM.
OK so most of you guys and girls out there probably think i'm being scabby by doing this, "it's not the real thing", to be quite honest i'd prefer to save about £400 (well even more than that because we're tlaking about swirl guitars) and have a guitar that I love, have you seen Mr. Fade's swirls
Just my thoughts on JEMs any way,
P.S. Secretly a JEM 7vwh would be nice, by I can't resist those swirls.
