JEM Project - COMPLETE!

A friend of mine pieced this baby together. I made him a pickguard for it, and saw it in person. As always, pics don't do swirls any justice. Thought I'd share it :-)

Wow another great axe

Anyone got any specs on this one? Body wood? Pickups? etc. etc.

The body, he won on "AUCTION". It was already swirled by Herc. He got a great deal on it, too. He paid what it would cost just for the body...almost like getting a free swirl! Wood type, I believe is basswood.

As you can see, it is an original VDY neck and Jeremy at LGM refinished the headstock.

The pups I don't know...I will ask him, but had them custom made.

Knobs and switch....AllParts

Pickguard....yours truly ;-)

BMC? B....M....C...? Hmmmm? Have you got a pic?

Looks great!

How come every topic I look at, Simons BMC will always pop up somewhere in there? Now that is a sweet guitar!

Thanks for the positive feedback about the axe...it plays beautifully. The pick ups are evo's, of course. Quite a network used for this one. Ibanez rules, lgm guitars, Ekg guitars, Herc Fede, Grant guitars. That's networking!!
