Talking a mini Jem for my daughter

hellooo... (sorry for my english)

long time ago (about 8 years), i bought a mini strato guitar for a joke.

now, i have a daughter. she has 4 years old now. she sees to me playing my ibanez guitars, and a day, she said to me that she wanted a guitar like mine in red color...

i remembered that mini guitar that it was in the attic. it was destroyed.

as i have tools now for my Jem projects, i recovered the neck, bridge and pickup. i bought new tuners, wood for the body and... i built a mini red Jem.

















i had a great time building the guitar and she is very pleased with her new guitar!!!

regards.
Daniel.

Cute man..both the amp and the guitar. Have you tried playing the multi effects pedal going thru the small amp. Wonder what it sounds like...

Re: a mini Jem for my daughter

thanks guys...

yes... i made the body.
the wood was very heavy, for this reason, i made de control cavity very big. i put the pickup near the neck so the guitar don't sound noisy.
i think that it soung great!!!

but... i think that the guitar will have not a long life... uhmm, only about a couple days.

here, she in acction:








PD: i hope that the children's protection society don't act against me for publishing a pic of a minor
