Jem Design Contest Loser....... finally complete.

well, here it is. The day I've been waiting for. Admittedly, I don't have it yet as Ernie at ET Guitars is still tweaking it and making sure it's perfect before freighting it over but man........ I'm in awe of these photos he sent me today and I'm chomping at the bit to play it.

Enjoy......

Now THAT is a nice Jem! Amazing build there my friend. I love how the vol/tone knobs hide, and also the fact that the design incorporates with the Ibanez logo. The graphics are really wlid! The inlays are AMAZING!! wonderful work there.

Freakin' AWESOME guitar Macka! Absolutely one of the best projects I've seen. Vai has no idea what he missed out on.

EDIT: It needs a string tree

Re: Jem Design Contest Loser....... finally complete.

Thanks for the nice comments all! I know I've been bangin on about this thing in here for a year now, so the least I could do was post up the pics as soon as I got them today.

I've really appreciated all the input from the Jemsiters, some of which changed the initial design into something even more wonderful. Due to a couple of peoples insistence that I try, for instance, Jeminizer's idea of trying an ebony fretboard as opposed to Maple, even though my heart was set on maple. Someone suggested pyramids instead of the vine and Mungojerries fantastic photoshop jobs of the finished product (which was incredibly exact incidentally) that really helped me choose which way to go. You sir are a legend. Ernie Taylor at ET Guitars convinced me to go black hardware instead of gold and I'm now definite it was the way to go. Thanks for your support everyone and I f**king love this website.

I'm salivating at the thought of holding this thing. (I still crave for a guitar with a maple fretboard dammit!)

Fair play, you walk the walk.

AWESOME guitar... If they made that, it would sell in massive numbers.
