Smile my new custom gmj

Hi everybody
I just got this togheter a month ago just wantet to share
I got most of the thigs on evilbay around the world
the body is a Richard Fay swirl got it from the bay from Ben Hawker wery friendly guy.
When i started my project in november 06 my idea was to make a black jem
but as you all know legacy guitars is a fraud so the black body i payed 430$
for never showed up so I ended up with a gmc swirl

I'm generally not a fan of swirls; but I've got to say, that looks amazing.

Wow! Expensive, but a nice swirl none-the-less. Post up pics when it's finished.

Dude, you must have gotten lucky to get a flame like that on a 555 neck. Every 555 neck I have ever seen has been junk. That one looks cool!

It is not expensive in europe a herc is arond 430 (880$)+shipping
and a herc from US without clearcoat is 450$ and 600$ with clearcoat + shipping
(and costum & tax when you get it to europe)
my gmc was around 1700$ incl. the uv1000 case and custom & tax from the things I bought from us (only if it was over 50$ incl. shipping)
a new jem7vwh cost 3125$ in Denmark, retail price is 3925$
if i lived in US I had many jem guitars

It was my first buy at the bay and the first thing for my jem custom project
I thing it is wery rare to se jems with flamed mapel I saw another at the bay few weeks ago it was a 7vwh from 2002 and i was tempted to bid on it but It costed around 1800$+shipping + taxes so that price was to hig for me at the moment, have to feed the kids to you know
ps. glad some one noticed the flames on the neck, thanks
