Jem 77PFP Build Thread

Yep--it's coming soon! Thanks to Jim for the scans, now I can get to work. The end result is going to be a purple floral pattern, as most of you could have guessed.
Here's the mockup, and I'll continue posting as i go along with this build thread.


You all may remember how the RG-550 Space Invaders turned out, so I can't wait to see this one finished.

I still might do the purple Hawaiian print that was one of my Design A Jem Contest entries, too.

Very nice design I would prefer the purple disappearing pyramids as inlay Im sick of the vine. But its cool either way. And Im not a monkey grip fan either but what can you do.

Re: Jem 77PFP Build Thread

Very cool idea. Will you use someone like ET Guitars for the neck? Did Jim scan an actual front-routed Jem body for you?

I'm not a huge fan of vines either, so I may do the pyramids. However, vines seem to "fit" with a floral body. I'm doing the neck last anyway.
