Just a bit more only Arrggghhh!!!

When I first got this JEM it was smash to crap, I bought it off from the owner at a price of 400usd, so I'm restoring it, the pickup is EVO neck, Fast track1 and EVO2. I scalloped the 12th fret till 20th fret. Got myself a new lo pro, an ESP arming adjuster. Can't wait for it to finish. Just missing a jack input and is actually waiting for it to arrive.

Yeap it is all original jem BFP body and neck. I have to strip the original blue flower paper, sadly it can't be rescued anymore.

Yes indeed

Sorry for the bad resolution, I'll try taking one with a better cam when I got it all done.

Great job rescuing her. Must have felt very strange pulling the paper print off. I'll bet you tried to save a great big piece of the paper huh?? I would love to have a few sheets of that print...

LOL! I love flowers but I don't like rotten flowers

Nah it really ain't that hard to scallop the maple, but actually this is the first time I scallop a board so I don't know if rosewood is easier or vice versa. I was guided by the guitar tech here cause I said I wanted to learn how to scallop and do it myself, so after a few frets I'm ready to go, it was fun scalloping actually, it's like masturbation LOL. I'm planning to scallop all my guitars from 12th fret and above only The only trouble is that you need to lacquer (or is it clearcoat) back the neck and sand paper it (use lightest sand paper) and polish it with a car polisher and done
