Well, alot of you have been waiting very patiently for this project, as have I, just an update for all of you.
The body has been completed by EKG, Mahogany body with all the Jem features of course.
It is currently at ATD awaiting the swirl, hopefully by mid to end of next week Darren will have it swirled (quivers in anticipation)
The neck, well, that's been my nightmare, started to do the inlay, then decided, I want an ebony board, so the neck is now undergoing the conversion from rosewood to ebony, but it will be done by the time I get the body back.
I have all chrome hardware, lo pro of course.
And Dimarzio Evolution pickups, in Red White and Blue of course.
There are some integral people I want to thank that are helping make this project a reality.
Eddie Kolesar for the body,
Darren Johansen from ATD for the swirl
Butch Slusher for the chrome hardware
Jon Rayl for the pickups
(I'd thank me for the neck, but that would be tacky LOL)
Hopefully in the next week there will be some pics to show you, and within a month, hopefully there will be a guitar to show!!!!!!
I'm completely ecstatic that this project is nearing completion, it has been a very special project to me, and one that I will keep forever.
Thanks again to all who helped, and are helping with this project.......
God bless America
