Lol again that fugly fractal copy!
Macka bro burn it hahahahahaahah

Too many knobs and pickups, hard to understand the picture = too crowded = crap.
Graphics(even fractal images copies) look better with less things over them.
1 pup + 1 volume + switch = 1 billion times better.

Don't know how Ibanez got away with a blatant image theft. Isn't that artwork copyrighted? I agree, too many knobs. Looks like a hacked job to me.

That isn't too many knobs, it's a Sustainer. Same setup as Flo.

Duh only you know it's a sustainer.
too many knobs over a graphic.
Too difficult to understand?
Let me try to explain it SLOW.

Re: So, This "the" Jem of the contest...

WOW....... I can say that I'm pretty underwhelmed by these pictures. It looks like one of those cheap vinyl overlays you can put on almost any guitar these days. It looks like they got a blue guitar and stuck a vinyl decal on it. Usually with a design that goes right to the edge, like an FP, it needs a small sunburst to ease it in or the design should wrap right around the guitar. When it just stops at the edge like that, it kinda looks cheap in my opinion.

I've been looking forward to seeing it and everything as the mockup presents a beautiful looking machine....... in the flesh though? it's all a bit meh really.

oh well...... it's only a matter of weeks before I can post you pics of mine complete.

EDIT: Ummmmmm, what the hell?..... it's got dots on the neck? That wasn't part of the design.

Re: So, This "the" Jem of the contest...

That was exactly the first thing I saw when I looked at these pictures Macka... dots on the neck... it makes it look even more like they just took an old RG and threw the graphic over the top of the clearcoat
