Hey!

It was Alan from http://www.area51customs.co.uk/swirledbodies.html

But unfortunately, due to health problems, he doesn't make them anymore

Re: Post your frankenjems/jem project/UV projects

Here's my FrankenJEM that I got from a member here. '93 neck on a 1st gen VWH body. All Ibanez hardware and pickguard. Dimarzio Evo's non-logo (wish I could find some logo ones for it). I swapped the Dimarzio 5-way for a VLX91. One small nick on edge of body and a slight scuff on headstock otherwise in great condition. Best sounding and playing guitar I have ever owned. The Alder and ebony are a perfect match.

Re: Post your frankenjems/jem project/UV projects

This is mine -- NOS JEM77FP neck on a 1987 RG550 that's in really great condition for its age. Seymour Duncan Custom Shop pickups, CTS and CRL electronics, paper-in-oil capacitor. Sounds amazing, plays like a dream. Unfortunately I may have to sell it though! I've got my eye on a UV...
