Blue Jem will have chrome vine done,Ala Deno's rather flash looking CVBK? And the Natural Jem will have Black,White and purple Pyramids done...I'm hoping to get the cash together soon and then i shall phone a certain person on here for discussion on what options and how long it'll take :-)

I like the natural jem personally. I think it has that cool 'worn' look which makes it look like it's seen a few miles.

BTW - has Rich seen that couch yet?

heh heh,Hi Gabe,The natural is made from a few differant guitars,The neck is a rg550,and the body i have no idea,But was covered in a thick sheet of grey primer sludge,After sanding and stripping for about 3 weeks,I really liked the look so decided to keep it so,It also sounds absolutely awesome,and the action is by far the best i have ever played on..Many thanks for your comments ;-)

As for Rich's couch,I know it's a slightly differant colour,But my old ones were almost identicle,I'll have to take a pic of em for Rich's amusement.

I like the natural one because it makes me think about that one...

... I like jems more "eye-catchy"... or flashy!!!
But it's your guitar and if you like it, then... It's good enough!

Everyone likes the Natural,If you ever get the chance to play her,You'll not want to put her down,You'll have to trust me on this,once i get the lions claws done (i'm to lazy to start em) i'll be getting the inlays done as well.
How do you mean *flashy* ??? Do you mean there is a lack of fancy inlays ?

Regards

Good luck for the "lion claw"! Let us see the result!

Leave the inlays as they are on the natural one. You dont want that guitar to look too flashy. It looks great as is!

Talk to LGM (Jeremy) about a logo. If you are putting it on an original Ibanez neck, no problem. It's just a matter of slipping a decal in an envelope and sending it to ya ;-) (How much is it to send a standard letter sized envelope to the UK?)
