Please post pic of Jem 7vwh with silver regular mirror pickguard

I've been looking and looking on here , so I wouldn't have to start a new thread, maybe I just suck but I've looked a lot and just can't find any previous threads that answer my question... I wanna go with a reg silver mirror pickguard on my 2008 Jem7vwh with lo pro and gold hardware.. but I figure someone on here must have done it alrealy so maybe I could see a pic before I take the plunge... please help me out!! it would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!!

Kev

Why don't you try the ibanez rg builder where you can customize all the colours.

Thanks so much for the reply! I had used the Rg builder, and it gave me the idea of what to expect.. I figured with most other jems having silver mirror or clear pickguards, that a fair amount of people have replaced the pearloid which judging by the forums isn't really loved, but rather accepted out of respects of Mr. Vai himself... , I really would love to see one before I do it.. mainly cause the mirror should match the vine inlays.. but maybe not so much my gold hardware... anyways.. I'm babbling!! Thank you for reading and responding!! Kev

Re: Please post pic of Jem 7vwh with silver regular mirror pickguard

So... I went ahead with the Silver mirror pickguard for my jem, I'm really happy with it!! Looks better in person than in pics! It accomplished what I wanted, making the white more 'pastel', also the mirror pickguard is so common on the jems that aren't white, and they are one of my favorite features on jems overall. So if any of you were considering doing this, check out the pics to see for yourself. I don't miss the pearloid at all, I wasn't a big fan of it. I used silver screws off another Ibanez, instead of the gold screws. I don't deny the silver with gold hardware is not ideal, but it really looks great in person. So happy!!

Warm Regards, Kev

Pretty cool stuff

Looks great!

I was think of doing this myself awhile back with a gold scratch plate but wasn't sure about how it would look, might just do it now after seeing the pics.

Where did you get the mirror scratch plate by the way?

Re: Please post pic of Jem 7vwh with silver regular mirror pickguard

Thank you for the nice comments!! I can't stop admiring it every time I see it! So glad I went through with it, I've had the guitar just over a year, and really wanted to do it from day 1. Steve Vai was kind enough to sign the back plate for me after a show. I wanted to bring the whole guitar, but figured I had a small chance of actually getting to meet him, and just took the trem plate. He was very very very nice!! Between the autograph, the pickguard and most importantly how nice it plays! I am a happy Jem player!!

Warm Regards
-Kev
