NGD Jem777 LNG

After many years of sourcing parts and spending money, here is my dream. This particular LNG is a tribute guitar crafted to exact specifications with one caveat, the neck is specifically made to the original wizard specs. Many thanks to the craftsmanship of Nate Perle @ Perle Guitars and Rodney over at Liquid FX. You guys truly do stellar work. I spent close to 4 years sourcing all original NOS Ibanez cosmo black parts for the hardware, and also as you can see, there is the original palmrest. Dimarzio Evolution pickups deliver the screaming sound. There is also a tone upgrade. Original pink lined Jem case and case candy included. This Jem plays as good as it looks and will be cherished for a lifetime.

Now for the ugly part, I lost 2 grand on this project. One grand was taken from me by Patrick Sims years ago who never delivered on his promise, and another grand lost to Livewire Guitars, who closed up shop and stole my money. I should have went to Nate first because he is awesome and I was even let into his workshop and given a tour. The past is past and I'll never see my lost money, but I regrouped and here is the outcome. Cheers.

Same, sorry to hear about the negative side of making your dream become a reality but congratz. This guitar looks awesome! I hope it plays as great as it looks.

This is also the "holy grail" for me and one day, I will have to do dive into making it become real.

Re: NGD Jem777 LNG

Thank you for the kind words. I am afraid to take it out of the case because it is so beautiful. But, how else are you gonna break-in a guitar? Yeah, it plays perfect. The action is spot on and the neck is straight as an arrow. Perhaps I'll take some more detailed shots and post them here. Cheers.

This guitar came out damn near perfect! It's awesome that you have your dream JEM, and you were able to get all the specs perfect for you. I would have gone with PAF Pros (if I could find an original set all the better) but of course this is about what you love. If this was my project I doubt I could have pulled it off as well as this beauty.

Congratulations on a beautiful guitar, and for the awesomeness of being able to be there from beginning to end!

I look forward to more pics!
