My Jem EVO Replica Replica Build...

Using a modified RG body and photos of the original from the "All about Evo site" I am creating this...

Original Photo:



Progress to date:














Waiting on some edge bridge posts, (cant source any) a relic Danny Gaton knob replica from Marc Rutters and an EVO bridge pickup.

Need to route the rear for the correct jack plug location and tonight I'm adding the Velcro to the rear cavity cover and the small circular Velcro patch beside the green Evo sticker.

Then I need to discolor the paint to give that aged yellow tinge...

Re: My Jem EVO Replica Replica Build...

nice work, you clearly have talent, please use that talent and stop using my Green Meanie pictures on your website!
You didn't ask and I don't like that you are passing my work off as your own.... I could make and sell them too.... I choose not to out of respect for Steve and what the instrument means at least to me and all the people here.

You clearly have skill as a builder, I am not being sarcastic, take pictures of your own builds please....

Re: My Jem EVO Replica Replica Build...

I put those up when I first made the site. I should have acknowledged you and I didn't so I apologise. Your guitar is the best I've ever seen and it inspired me to try my own. I'll replace them with my own shortly when my Green Meanie is finished. I don't believe I have talent at all and my version will never recreate the original as well as you have. By the way I don't sell either. I'm just making replicas go the guitars I grew up with. Apologies again.

Re: My Jem EVO Replica Replica Build...

You can use the photos just make sure people know what they are.. that is all.
you don't have to credit me, just make sure people don't think you are the one who made it, and I don't care, as these photos are technically public, once they are posted.
just bad Mojo to misrepresent..
Apology accepted, just say they were from a project on Jemsite or something, as I am not looking for attention, help the greater good which is here, and you can use anything I posted.

BTW: hard to be mad when you do such nice work.... I can't wait to see how your Meanie turns out, based on what I see here... You are talented I will give you that.

Sorry for derailing, just had to vent..

Re: My Jem EVO Replica Replica Build...

Thanks dude and I never apologized for the stickers incident either. I was just so inspired by your replica I got excited!

The Meanie wont be as good as yours, maybe you can advise me with the build!

I've removed your photos from the site, but would be happy to add you to the website if you fancy using it yourself for your own projects!

I eventually got all the stickers except the vision and I had to recreate the obscure stickers like the '100% natural', the yellow 'Go for it' triangle and the skull on the headstock etc. I used whatever photos I had and scanned them into photoshop then scaled etc and printed. I think they are ok. Did you spray the body white first then green? I believe that's how Steve did the original a few times.

Cheers

Andy? Sorry I haven't been around the forums in forever so I don't know/remember half the builders that use to make necks.

Re: My Jem EVO Replica Replica Build...

That is one dirty looking guitar. I would be afraid I might catch tetanus by touching it.

Re: My Jem EVO Replica Replica Build...

UPDATE...

Fixing the velcro to keep the rear cavity cover on. Fixed the trem claw and removed the old RG term stud bushing device which turned out to be two bushings connected with a metal strip in between? Need to slightly drill out for the Edge term bushings now.



Some images of the neck with relic'd tuners and but etc. Also got the pick holder for the side of the neck.
