JEM Project build help..

Hello everyone.

I recently picked up a Jem body (copy), and I am about to place an order with ET guitars for a neck. This is by no means intended to be an exact replica or anything, just a JEM body with my own twist, you know?

Anyways the neck specs are:
Ibanez 24 fret Stainless AANJ
Ebony board with no inlay, unless they quote me a decent price on the "Galaxy" inlay
Reversed headstock and glow-in-the-dark side dots

My dilemma is colors. I initially thought of doing a swirl, which I may if I cant decide on a solid color. I kinda wanted to stick to 777 color schemes. I love the Black/green, the DY, the LNG and the SP, but cant really figure out how to tie everything together. Ive been sitting in front of the V-RG for hours trying to decide and cant lol.

I need suggestions for body, headstock, Ibanez logo, knobs, bobbins, and pickguard. Im sticking with black hardware.

Any input or ideas??

Sorry to the mods if this is in the wrong forum..

Green. Pink pickups

No logo as it isn't Ibanez.

Does that matter? I guess it doesn't as long as I didn't try to sell it as an Ibanez. Hard to do that with no serial number. I just think the headstock looks boring without that logo
