JEM light up Vine fretboard

a couple years ago i found several JEM necks for sale on ebay that light up. i think it was the smaller pedals that light up but im not sure.

im not looking to buy, but im wondering if anyone got one? or someone knows how much they go for? or more importantly, who is making them?!?!?!

i think its awsome and want more info!

Sims custom shop was the only person I knew of that did it, but I'm sure there are others.

Re: JEM light up Vine fretboard

as nice as those are.. I would much rather prefer the vine inlay to be made out of a clear plastic, and a lighting system that made the vine glow, not just points of light... Think that would be cool also for the Ibanez logo on the headstock..

kinda like the nike logo in this photo..

Mai guitar does them, but he doesn't have it listed on his site. I'd like to know how it's done.

Same way a truss rod is installed, sandwiched between the fretboard and neck.

I figured that much, I'm referring to how the LEDs are set in the fret board and how they are covered up so they are flush with the fretboard surface.

Ah, okay. Well, I'd guess that they're covered with some type of clear plastic or vinyl inlay material. But I'd just be guessing . . .
