Ok in the spirit of posting all the nice new gear and sweet collections lately, I've finally got time to post my "Restored" Jem90ham. I have not played this guitar since I went into National Service! Before that I took out the pickups and sold them away, firstly because I disliked the tone of the Evos and *gasp* I was kinda strapped for cash.
I'm the first owner of the guitar, I placed an order for it through my god-parents living in Japan as soon as I saw the pictures posted on jemsite during NAMM '98.
Man that was soooo long ago.
Some of you may remember my various rants posting about pickguard corrosion, I'm sure Rich would know
Anyway many thanks to Rich regarding his article on his website.
My original pickguard looked almost exactly like the one on Rich's site, just with a littler lesser pitting. I did exactly what is described there, but for much cheaper, 30 Singapore Dollars. Took it to a local electro-plating store and got it done within 3 days!
Got myself a set of Dimarzio Breeds, got everything together and sent it in to my tech here in Singapore. He did the wiring and setup within 2 hours. Seemed like everyone conspired to get it done for me quick
Well here she is in all her glory!
Next to her sister on my EVH inspired wall...*UV777Bk's sleeping in the case now*
I'm a very happy boy now.
