some cool jem idea's

I've been looking at different paint jobs for a jem but i can never decide on one and i have to decide on the paint before i get the neck cause i have to have a matching vine!! plz help maybe tell me some of your dream jem idea's. I was thinking maybe a jem that looks like his badhorsie guitar on the front page http://www.vai.com/ a black guitar with white binding or something, just have like an abalone vine. i guess thats kinda like a 10th anniversary tho lol

Go with something TOTALLY different if you are doing a custom job.

I'd like to see a nice red JEM with an ebony board with maybe a red or abalone vine with abalone binding.

Re: some cool jem idea's

like says waylay00, if you want make a custom jem you try something different... not a simply jem copy.

i am building 4 or 5 jem projects and they are very differents than original jems.

you can try a preview with kisekae website:

regards.

(sorry for my english)

Well here's something I came up with while daydreaming about the JEM 20th:

That might be cool. Also, there is a sticky thread where people post photoshop pictures of JEMs they imagined. Check it out:

that is why i started this thread tho, i dont want something that looks like any other jem but also something that fits my style so im just browsing some concepts and that photoshop page gave me the idea to do a space jem but every1 i ask cannot airbrush this, also i did ask sims and he says its out of his skill level.
