Re: A mysterious mirror JEM with vine

I missed the other thread about this guitar, prior to posting this thread. It looks cool, but I think pearl dots look cooler. But that's me. Having said that, it's a great guitar. Probably cost a fortune to get it customized that way!

Pearl dots look cheap, if youre gonna go "dots" at least they should be abalone...

To me, the BRMR should have come with pbk style pyramids...

Re: A mysterious mirror JEM with vine

Looks awesome, and better than simple dots. Mirrored pyramids might be best of all there but the mirrored vine looks great too.

Umm, Rich, how much would THAT run me to have you do another one of those on my 77BRMR??

Martin Sims (Sims Custom UK) did the vine. It's 275 quid, or approx $ 500.

I got the mr from Rich who was kind enough to remove the neck and ship it to Sims and then after the neck came back he did his awesome setup for me

He's DA MAN!

But it was all such a PIA I don't know if he's do that again...

But....never know till you ask I spose......and money talks!!
