Re: Ibanez JEM 77777 winner of the Design contest

We were wondering if you'd ever show up here. Welcome aboard,but don't use the search feature to look for discussions concerning your winning design.....you might not like what you find ;P
Congrats, though. Did Steve sign it for you, or do something speciall?

Steve thanks me for the design and signed the guitar on the back

Looks like he wrote his life story on the back.

Very nice and contemporary looking, like a future swirl.

God knows where you start with trying to get a great concept picture like that onto a guitar.

Re: Ibanez JEM 77777 winner of the Design contest

Just a heads up Alessandro. You probably will find a few people in here not too happy that your design won. Admittedly, i guess most of us in here were all pretty annoyed at the time of the announcement when people discovered that the artwork wasnt original. Pretty much contravening the rules that were stated.

In saying all that, I like the design and so do many others, but don't be surprised with some people's reactions.

Congratulations on the win dude and you now are the owner of THE rarest Jem in the world. That's quite awesome indeed. I'm sure you've been on a high since July last year. I would be.

One question, do you play it? Or display it? I've often wondered what I'd do in your position, especially with a message on the back. I'd be too scared to wear it off so would probably just have it in a display case or something.

Peace.

Congrats on winning the contest. The guitar looks pretty good. Macka (who has replied to this thread) built his own design from that contest. Check it out, when you get a chance. It's awesome.

Re: Ibanez JEM 77777 winner of the Design contest

Since nobody else brought it up yet, and we saw some clips of Steve playing his on Youtube--why is his version different? His inlays are vines but with dots, plus it looks like he has a sustainer installed.

I also noticed that this guitar does not have a Jem logo?
