Jem 77vbk black pickguard + white pickups and my other jems! Gmc (soon to be) and DY

http://s401.photobucket.com/albums/pp99/shockwave1192/
(pics 80 photos).. got a little camera happy.
Hey every one I moded my jem 77vbk, took off the mirror pickguard, took out the pickups. Replaced with a Black/white/black pickguard loaded with A Mo joe in bridge and a Paf joe in neck. (sounds better than stock by a lot). I ordered white knobs and a white switch tip i really like the way this came out. I'll add pics when the parts come in to see the difference. Also pictured is my Jem777dy got off 3bay and replaced the pups with a new paf pro in the neck, a super distortion in the bridge (beats the hell out of the paf for bridge) and just a green cap over the stock single coil. I call it the watermelon guitar. Also theres my Mtm1 just put new 11's and polished it up. And last but not least my Jem Gmc (body being swirld by http://outofthisswirled.com/index.html. Will add pics of finished guitar when it comes.

Let me know what you guys think of everything!!

Enjoy,
-Steve

Sorry bud--IO don't like the way it looks at all. While I dig the white pickups, I think removing the mirrored pickguard took away some of the classiness. I do like the natural Jem you've got--is it a custom build?

Yeah its a custom build, but I will be selling the body on 3bay when the gmc swirl arrives because I just have no use for it.

I liked the mirror but it was always getting really bad looking with all the fingerprints because I use it so much, then id have to worry about being easy on it when playing trying to not get it all messed up again.Then i would have to clean it every other day . Idk though im really diggin' this new look.The pictures make me not like it as much, then i turn around and all i can say is wow. To each his own!

You ought to post that body in our classifieds first--somebody would snag it quick. Is it an AANJ or square heel neck pocket?

Cool!!!!
You only need a maple fretboard to get a hybrid Vai-Gilmour tribute... very very close to my dream-guitar!!
Congrats!
