JEM DNA project pictures and neck suggestions

Its been a number of years and I am almost done with my JEM DNA project. I got this swirled from Herc Fede via ET Guitars a few years ago and got all the parts except for pickups from Rich. The neck is a spare I had lying around from Jeremy of LGM many years ago. I am considering my other options for a more identical DNA neck. I have posted a few pictures of the DNA as it is right now below

I think that some of the real ibanez swirls are hit and miss.

That one on the other hand is killer!

I prefer that swirl over a lot of the actual DNA guitars that I've seen, and I really like the neck too! Awesome looking guitar.

Thanks guys.

I am on the look out for a real DNA neck to complete the guitar or going with ET guitars replica neck. I am sure it will be a needle in a haystack to get that real DNA neck though.

I was going to recommend contacting Ernie at ET guitars, he's currently working on the paint and headstock decals on my 777VBK restoration project. I was in his workshop last year, he does good work.

Thanks Pteropid. Yeah I went past his workshop after christmas 2018 to pick up this guitar. BTW, I did not know that he will do decals. I will give him a buzz shortly.

I would also recommend CWG for the guitar neck. He did a killer job on my PMC neck. Even scalloped the last four frets.

Very professional and great communication.

Thanks 408najera1. I will have a look at them as that neck looks really good on that awesome PMC.
