Mikey's Bad Horsie - by EKG

Well Folks, here she is:



- Ultra-thin Rosewood 7VWH Neck
- Unfinished Swamp Ash Body by EKG
- Pick Guard by EKG
- DiMarzio Pogos
- Tremol-no installed

I'm planning to tune this baby down to C, but at the moment she's standard-tuned.

This guitar is gorgeous. Eddie did an amazing job on the body, and the raw wood feels as smooth as silk. This is an amazing sounding guitar. Very ballsy through a Legacy! The combo of swamp ash and rosewood is really something else!

Another amazing job by Eddie! Thanks brother!

Hmm - really hot. I only just picked up a Jem with EVOs in it. My others have PAF Pros and my Universe has Blazes so I haven't really been able to do an accurate A/B comparison.

I'm still working out the difference... but I can tell you that they sound fookin' awesome!

Yeah - it sure is a beautiful piece of wood too. Eddie is the man.

Could the back of the neck not be stripped also, seems that teeny bit out of place for my taste.

Will we ever see a neck-thru jem?

The neck is one of Steve's shaved down ones. I'm not about to strip it... I believe the original "Bad H." guitar used during the Fire Garden Tour has a natural neck though...
