MY NEW JEM! - Jem777vbl (under construction)

ok
here is the jem that I am working on

First of all, may I say thank you to Kenny (kennydoe)

for selling me his old RG body, jem hardware and pickups

and

Brian (becalvert) from http://www.universaljems.com

for the BFP neck and doing the custom work on the body-
cheers guys!

anyway here is the one and only Jem777vbl -still being put together but on the way:




and here is a close up of the neck



let me know what you think!

Cheers

Simon
ps I am planning to do a blue swirl on it at some point (ATD) and then have a Jem77BMC

Hi Simon,

Tasty, very tasty!

Make sure you bring her along in October, I'd love to see her in the flesh! *And a blue swirl will look terrific I think.

Ooh! *Ooh! *How about a pickguard like this one for it?

Especially after your blue swirl. *That'd be wonderful, and you could extend to Jem 77BMCDX!!!

'Might want to round off that monkey grip though... looks a little SHARP.

That looks damn cool! Even without the swirl you want on it! What colours (apart from blue!) are you planning to swirl with?

Hey man, what'd you do to my guitar?!?!?!?!?!?!?

heheh

What'd you do with the old neck? *I'll be there's guys ere that'd pay a bunch for it. *I loved the grain of that neck - one of the things that sold me on it.

Good luck with her! *She gave me many years of pleasure.

Brian has the neck.

'twas a little trade-in for the customisation of the guitar!

LOL Julio!

You have now been crowned an honorary ****ney!


Simon,

Any more thoughts to the swirl idea?
I think the blue(s)/white would yield a stunning result.
