My RG250DX Project to JEM

Hey guys,
I've seen a couple of RG350DX mods on this site already an it inspired me to try and do mine. So I thought I would share my progress with you guys!

I still need to finish the Headstock (I am getting a Ibanez JEM logo, I need to put some laquer on, sand it, etc. After I will upgrade the pickup to probably some Evos of some color! I won't make any monkey grip. The new pickguard didn't fit the original holes in my guitar I had to drill some new one and take the Jigsaw to enlarge some holes for the 5 way switch.


Tell me what you guys think!!!

Looks a little dark to me. Maybe the lighting. Go get a replacement fingerboard from Al at aiguitars on eBay and inlay set---do the pyramids.

yeah it is a bit darker than original 777 LNG colors. I won't do the fingerboard either, I am not that skilled and I don't want to invest to much money into this. I rather buy the real deal :P

Krylon has a really nice neon green now---much closer to the real LNG.
