JEM Diamond Plate anyone?

Got the idea from a discussion on mod-ing a UV777BK and goofed around with KISKAE for a while:





Not sure I like the binding 100%, but I liked the pickguards too much. Think I'll go play around a bit more.

(if you look really closely, there's a reflection in the pickguard on the second one of the photographer )

This has kinda been done. There's a guy at a place called Sharp Concepts named Jeremy. (Might be "Sharpe Concepts")
He makes custom pickguards from diamond plating. Any shape, andy size, and will powder coat it in a variety of colors.
I've seen a Universe come into my shop with one. He does good work...

Doh... i don't mean that like "Pfft...this has SO been done before..."
I just meant there's a way to do it if you are interested. Sometimes typed words look different from how you'd say it...lol

Do you know his web address?? I just bought a diamond plate pick-guard (on e-bay) for my DBK and it looks awsome!! Now I want to put a matching truss-rod cover on it. I can't seem to find anybody that makes them... Thanks for your help.....
