Homemade Jem guitar

This is my homemade Jem guitar as an tribute to Steve vai, Yngwie Malmsteen and Paul Gilbert.
It has Ibanez jem shape, Yngwie's Fender yellow color with white blank pickguard, reverse headstock like PGM and maple neck (first idea were the black dots as on PGM301, but I changed my mind at last minute.
As I can't post a link in here just go on youtube and type in Steve Vai's Homemade Jem guitar No.2 and you'll find it, hope ya like it.

That's really nice! I love all of these three players and that guitar honors them all.

Re: Homemade Jem guitar

Looks awesome. Do yourself a favour though, put a Gotoh trem in there rather than the Schaller. Cheaper, and a far better trem.

schallers use hardened steel knife edges, gotohs do not. Theres a reason they are cheaper.
