My latest establishment (Pics)

How do you like this? Messed something with the electronics because can't hear bridge/mid pup. Will work 'em out later.

I may keep the black pickguard and add some chrome to the pups or put a mirror pickguard with black pups. No idea...
It has an Evolution as the bridge pup.

Looks cool. Would look even better with white pickups imo.

Haha. C'mon, it's not that bad, is it?

Looks very nice in person. And plays really well. I'm happy with it. Will get the
mirror pickguard there, too. Poor man's BRMR =)

There is no way that's a poor man's BRMR, BRMR's are awesome,they play smooth like melted butter but without the mess. I like the wood chipper idea myself.

As long as you are happy with it. I don't think it looks too bad at all. How did you go wiring back up the other pick ups?

Yes, I am. Been playing with this one only for a few days now. The real Jem's collecting dust =) The RG550 I got, had Evo on the bridge and Ibanez pups so I decided to keep these for now, because they sound good. Quite a bit too hot output to my taste, though.

And now I've one full "leftover" Ibanez I'll start modding quite a lot. I guess I'll put the Lo-Pro from the RG550 to my Jem77FP and use the Edge on the leftover-one. Maybe I swirl it, maybe I won't. Don't know. Gotta plan a lot =)

One more pic:


And, the reason why I got the RG550. Insurance covered this with more than what I paid for it
