Kinda Jem project

i've just bought this body at Perleguitars :






http://www.perleguitars.com/054.html

that is the beginning of a new adventure

the first one was :




I'd like to have black or cosmo-black hardware, black T-knob, Orange V-knob, orange center PU (not too much you can call it a Halloween Jem )



any ideas ?

Re: Kinda Jem project

Throw in some green or purple humbuckers to add to that insane vibe!

Re: Kinda Jem project

Thanks for the ideas !
I was focused on a RGR570 and finally found this one :
(I have not an unlimited budget)

I bought a few days ago this RG550 for 400 euros :




why ? because it has the cosmo black hardware with Lo-Pro Edge, a good neck, and ORANGE pickups !!!
That are DiMarzio Humbucker from Hell and Tonezone !!!

first simulation :

the colors are not real especially the orange
in real life it's really neon orange



thougts ?

Re: Kinda Jem project

I'm sorry to have to say this, but that guy really needs to work on finish sanding his bodies before he paints them. It basically looks like it went straight from the CNC machine into the paint. Also, every body he does has white showing through in the claw area.

Hopefully you're happy with it, but that guy just does really amateur work IMO.

That swirl looks amazing, although im not sure about the choice of pickup/volume/tone knob colour.

Re: Kinda Jem project

i bought a body from nate perl, his swirls are ok and not very bright, i have one that is ok, but the body work is terribly not sanded or sealed, and impossible to refinish, i thrown one in the bin in the end, then i went to al at outofthisswirled, when you put the 2 next to each other the differnece was staggering.
