Rootbeer Jem ponderings

I have a basswood body, rootbeer style, AANJ neck joint, to go with the DBK neck I have.



Anyway


I'm wondering. Do you think the actual rootbeer bodies were stained, then burned, then celarcoated? Or do you think they were burned and then the laquer itself is tinted...


What do you think?

Re: Rootbeer Jem ponderings

I think they were stained, then clearcoated. I do not think anyone burned them, at least not the one I got. I've heard others say the same thing, that they were burned, and some of the darker ones look like they could have been burned. I believe that is due to uneven staining, and not actual burning. The burnt stained blue JEM might add to the confusion.

Hmmmm it looks like scorching around the handle and the tiger claw, of course there are variations.

Interesting. Yeah the BSB REALLY looks like they hit it with a torch...

Was a bit unclear about the BSB, as they are burned.

Here's some pics of some Jems. Notice the scorch marks at the tiger claw, and the handle.
