My Jem 77777

The Jem contest winner (Alex) used a public domain pic to win the Jem contest. So I decided to get a photoshopped pic myself. Anyone can make his guitar: )

I used those cool guitar wraps to do this. I'll put the neck & electronics one of these days:

I don't think you recognize the irony in this post. Or maybe it was intentional. If so, well played!

I don't know if I was upset, but I think that it is a shame that it wasn't somebody's original work that won. In the end they took the guitar that they thought was the coolest. I guss it doesn't really matter how it got there.

Re: My Jem 77777

At least they took the coolest.
The runners up section is worse IMHO.
Some designs that didn't even make the finals, were ways better than what was in the finals...

Well.... in the end, it's what Steve himself likes and we all know he can be a bit strange sometimes.....well..... most of the time. Though he's still the king.

Re: My Jem 77777

I can't believe someone else would spend the dough to build a replica of an ugly guitar that should never have won in the first place!

Beauty is in the vai of the beholder: )

I thought the whole premise that this would be the rarest jem was funny. Anybody can build a "rare" jem-- a guitar is a commodity product. It's crazy to pay the brand name premium.
