My refinished jem 77BFP





Don't nag me bout the original pattern cos it's beyond saving, thanks to the previous dumb owner. But I prefer this better than the older flower pattern. Pickup is dimarzio evo neck and evo2, centre dummy pickup with no magnet to reduce string drag. Three way with push pull pot. I use the edge trem to the originally fitted lo pro cos I prefer the edge trem better. And the trem block is change to a brass block which is awesome!

Re: My refinished jem 77BFP

Looks nice! Now that I think of it, I've never seen a blue jem. Really beautiful. I somehow got tired of the white or swirled jems and black UVs.

Nice job! But I think the freatboard needs some cleaning and I just can't stop staring at that blue tonality. Absolutely love it!!

Wow, never saw that beauty. But I still prefer the blue jem of this thread: there's something in that blue tonality ...

Thanks a lot guys
I got this idea from paul gilbert's reissue jem, the blue and pink pickup one but I can't remember the model. If I were to get the blue one instead it'll boring

The PGM100 is what you're thinkin' about.

And that looks great!
Not what I'd do, but I'm the sentimental type! :P
Play it well.

Re: My refinished jem 77BFP

Looks great, shame about the original finish, but if thats beyond redemption then this is a really great way of refinishing! The pink on blue really goes well!

I like and dislike the floral thingy. It looks great but sometimes it looks like a granny guitar haha no offense though.
