Re: Jem body question

Alder and basswood are the most commom among production Jems. Out of the two you listed, I would go for mahogany, just because I like the tone you get out of it.

Re: Jem body question

The ones on ebay are usually not very good unless you get a parted out jem where the body is sold seperately. Your best bet it to contact EKG (www.ekgguitars.com). They are the best company for making Jem/PG/RG bodies and would definitely not dissapoint. Hope this helps!

Re: Jem body question

Many of the bodies for Jems on ebay right now are well done and made by and ex-ibanez employee/designer.
They get good feedback on projectguitar.com
