Jem7BSB - not enough care on the X inlay - wood dust etc. in

I got myself a second hand Jem7BSB, VERY VERY HAPPY with the sound and killer look in great condition.
One complain I have are the dots on the fretboard...
Under the transparent plastic dots/inlay with the screw X inside, there are dust and wood dust etc inside it, the stuff u would expect from a guitar factory but they should have cleaned it up.
I am sure they could have take more care and cleaned it before putting those in... for such an expensive guitar.
Anyone else have the same on their Jem7BSB or Jem7D? I would like to know. Is it just mine being unlucky?

I still love this guitar

Jem7BSB - not enough care on the X inlay

First off I hate that inlay so cheap and cheesy. But yes I have seen a few like that on DBK's. My suggestion is send it to littlegreenman for some pyramids or a vine, would look so much sweeter.

My worthless 2 cents,
Brett

Great idea! *I had thought that my DBK would look cool with pyramids. *Hmmm...so much to do, so little money!

Ive noticed a little of the same on my DBK. *I like the screw head inlay (for a change from the Jem norm), but it seems that it was done a little sloppy in many cases. *I bet pyramids would look sweet on a DBK though. *How much would a modification like that run?

Same thing on my DBK. I guess it kinda runs in the family of the screw inlays...
I would also be interested in replacing them for the disappearing pyramids. If anybody can get a price, please let me know. I wonder how much it would be with international shipping...

Jem7BSB - not enough care on the X inlay

Wow, thanx Brett, I appreciate the kind words. *For all you DBK owners, I can do the elusive (LOL) chrome vine or pyramids (for that industrial Jem look) *Or BSB, I can do pyramids or vines in just about any colors you want. *Email me if you want to do something like that, I've been wanting to do a Chrome vine or pyramids on a DBK or BSB for a while, I've done some really good test pieces with the chrome look, and I think it would look awesome on these "industrial" finish guitars! *

As for the actual problem at hand, it's just plain and simple poor work, there is no excuse for there to be dust in those inlays. *I never noticed on the couple of DBK's I've seen, but then, I always thought the screw heads were a little understated for a Jem anyway. *Oh well, you can get in touch with me for pricing and everything if you would like to do something.

Thanx again!

Jem7BSB - not enough care on the X inlay

I dunno, maybe I am the only one to like the screw head inlays (although pyramids are cool, I don't quite think they'd work), but I must sadly agree about the inlay work on the BSB. I don't have the wood-shavings, but I do have glue that's spilled over and one or two other slightly annoying things. Anyway, If I were to get the inlays redone I'd have real screw-heads put in (with a light plastic on top so I get to keep my fingers)

But yeah, more care could have been taken. Can't fault the rest though!!

Jem7BSB - not enough care on the X inlay

Hi Herman,

Yeah, I have the same problem on my DBK; a couple have some dust in 'em. But what's worse is I had one of the plastic caps pop out on me! I coulda broke down and cried at that point I ended up superglueing it back in, making sure it was the right way around so it would sit flush again. When the plastic caps were put in at the factory they weren't put in straight and then shaped to the radius of the fretboard so when it popped out I had to fiddle with it a while to get it in right again. But oh well, I can't see the dust at a distance so I don't really care all that much.

But, one of these days, when I win the lottery, I AM gonna send the neck to Jeremy and have him do a chrome vine inlay for me. *DROOL!*

My DBK inlays show the same thing too. Dust and micro wood pieces.

A chrome or silver vine inlay sounds cool - in theory... Any pics Jeremy?
