Some new pics of my Jem77MVBKL...

Well, I know how you guys love pics, so I took a few new shots of my BFP neck on the new 550 I got, and after I put in the 2 new pickups, the thing looks sick, just check it for yourself...oh, and I'm not sure if Jem77MVBKL is right, I'm not totally adept on ibanez's prefix's. (Maple Vine BlacK Lefty?!?)

oh, FYI, probably not 56k friendly..

Cool guitar dude!

Will you monkey-grip it?

Yeah, when I have the money, I'll send it to SCS to redone and grip'd. I could have a new body made too by Chris Woods, but I want to stay true to Ibanez authenticity.

Exclamation Re: Some new pics of my Jem77MVBKL...

Maybe it's an idea to send pix to IBZ, so they see what left-handed people like you who want a Jem must go through to obtain one.

Cheers!

I'm afraid to! No really, I am. The neck has never had any string tension whatsoever, so I don't know whats going to happen, or if i'm going to have to really tweek the hell out of the truss rod or what not, and I hate messin' with it. I know I'm just going to have to bite the bullet and do it anyways though...

and once its done, I will be sending pics to Ibby, trust me...

You'll have to eventually.... even if a tech does it, he'll need full tension on it to set the action and check for some relief. You can string her and if it looks like she's getting too much relief just loosen the strings. Then either adjust her or take her to a tech.

Don't worry, that neck is made to withstand tension. It will be alright. Maybe you'll have to tweak a little, yes...

I'd be dying to hear her scream dude, so string THAT BABY UP MAN!!!! :-D

Lefty..... PM FrankFalbo...... Isn't he the guy who does guitar necks? He could probably give you some input on setting that neck up.

Re: Some new pics of my Jem77MVBKL...

Anyone ever tell you guys that your all really pushy

here ya go, however shes not tuned up or anything, I'm just letting the neck adjust to having tension on it, probably for the next 12 to 24 hours, I figure baby steps is the way to go on something like this.

Interesting guitar, I love the BFP neck and the black body and blue pickups are a cool combo, nicely done and cool name too.....

...you could also name it Jem77BFPBKL
