Home made JEM by TWIN

Hello people!!!

I`m from Croatia, and I decide to make another JEM guitar and share with you on Jemsite forum!!!

Some of you have already seen this (my first two guitars) but here again,my first two build JEM guitars

1. Purple red jem

2. Marine blue jem

My last project: Started in may 2010.
Body is two piece alder...with white plastic binding
Neck is from maple, with mahogany sapelli skunk stripe

I have two jem guitars that I build (pictures in thread- Home made JS) with rosewood fingerboard. I don`t like maple fingerboard, I never liked him, but I realized that it is very soft under my fingers ... and that suits me more .... most likely I will put this on my guitar...

Nice work!

what's up with the bridge? It looks like an EP, but made from brushed aluminum - you didn't make that yourself, did you?
