Jem505 to tinker with
I'm awaiting my brand new 505 that I found in a local guitar shop. It was sitting in it's case out back but due to chatting about them it's found a new home.
I've been after a Jem for a few years but some things I didn't like, such as the fretboard. If I'm a Jem owner I want a maple board with no vine, so this is a great starting point for me. So by the end of the week I'll have it. It' s white, brand new but will soon have a new pick guard (either plain black or a patterned black and white) green knobs, pink and green gravity storms and a green truss rod cover.
I'm debating swirling the body at some point. I'm a guitar builder and while I'm comfortable painting bodies, I have never done a swirl, so might leave that for a while, or at least test on one of my bodies first.
Anyway, hello and thoughts welcome, as are any images that might guide me. I'm mostly an N4 player so this will be a bit different!
