Jem77BMC - Custom Jem Blue Multicolour

Hello from Australia
Here are the first pics online of my new guitar taken as I played it on the steps of the Sydney Opera House last week Dec 18th.
Thanks to Brian for all his help in making this one!
Thanks also to Kevan, Chris C, and lots of other people for various parts!

It is a Jem77BMC (blue multicolour)

ATD swirl by Darren Johansen
Herc Fede three colour pyramid inlay
Head stock says 'Ibanez Simon Wilkins'
Mahogany body made by Charles Elliot, a friend of Brian Calvert

Dimarzio pickups
Steve's special in the bridge
Air norton in the neck
HS2 in middle

Wizard neck, rosewood fretboard (RG neck)

All other parts Dimarzio or Ibanez derived.












































let me know what you think!

Best wishes

Simon in Australia
ps more pics to come when I get back to England

Stunning. THE best looking Jem i've ever seen.

I'd hate to think how much that cost you, with all the shipping, duty, and general 'UK Tax'.

I'd trade two or three JEM10th s for that (like I have two or three 10ths )

That's the best swirl JEM I've ever seen, possibly the best looking JEM too

Congrats Simon!

When I first saw the pics in davenit's post, I had a small alarm telling me this one was yours. The swirl is simply fantastic. It is without doubt one of my all time favorites.

Jealousy doesn't quite cover it for me. I recommend that you buy a new burglar alarm and insurance cause I want that thing

It's an RG neck on a custom made body

And it's gorgeous

Webster's and the Oxford Dictionary have announced the newest word entry into the Enlish language:

Jemenvy: v. The coveting of an Ibanez or custom made Jem guitar, schweeter than sweet, belonging to another.

Example: Scott was jemenvious of Simon's lovely new JEM77BMC.

Congrats and I hope to see it in person at Jemfest!
