JEM Color Modification Thread!

Hey, I was just wondering if anyone here changed small stuff like the pickguard of a 7VWH or put green slime pickups in it. Maybe put white Evo's in a 77FP? Or some red knobs and green switches? Let's get some pics in here, I'm waiting for my white JEM to arrive (it's in customs right now) and I'm thinking about doing some small color scheme changes to slightly change the appearance of the whole instrument!

So if you've got suggestions, mockups or pictures of your own stuff.. Please go ahead and post away!

I always want to see a 77 BFP with white pick ups.

Here's my FP with EMG's. Though, they're being replaced with pink ones and getting put back to original shape, some may think this looks okay.

Gotta tell you, I prefer the green pickups. You've posted this one before and I've always like the look of it.

Re: JEM Color Modification Thread!

If you could repaint the Ibanez logo on the headstock to green, that would make the guitar totally badass. It looks a bit weird with the pink logo, but the green pups and knobs are aaaawesome!

Then entire guitar is getting worked over. New Steve Special/HS-2/Air Norton in pink, Pickguard paradise guard and refinished. Will look brand new when it's all complete.

Thanks, other people have said the same thing about the logo but I can't do any painting on it. I prefer to only do reversible mods. I have a green pick though, hopefully that counts for something!
