If it were me, I would use the parts and create a restored Jem777

Neon blue body matching neon blue headstock. Pink Dimarzios, fluro yellow knob sets (white based) oh your making me drool.....

Re: JEM project, sell or finish?

If it was mine (and if I had the money ) I would finish it and make it look like I want, a reflection of my personality. I don't really like to sell things that I have used or modified a lot. They have some kind of sentimental value to me.

Re: JEM project, sell or finish?

Personally i'd make it pink 'n paisley

buuuuuttttttttttt

if you decide to sell it there's no better place than here.


If you are going to restore it it'd be cheaper than buying a mint one for sure.
