You beat me to it. Not that it looks ugly, but I mean... cmon.. If you are going to chrome a Jem, at least use a color that was in production for a long time (aka WHITE).

Right!

One thing I would do and I am considering! Is having a BRMR body, VWH neck and pups (EVOs). Great combination! Because I love the BRMR body, love EVOs, and the neck profile of a VWH or VSBL.

Re: Steve Vai forum

Hey..... careful guys, JJEMMER will probably "love" that Reynolds Wrap VSBL with a vine! Who knows..... he may even want to modify his to match!

God, I sure hope this doesn't prompt him to post picks of his original Reynolds Wrap guitar with the twig inlay again!

Oh gawd...I think I'm in love:O)

Actually, I think it looks kinda cool except for the the dots/led in the vine. Prolly looks good in the dark, but that sorta defeats the purpose of the vine,, but it does look cool! You're right right ryan, I wouldn't do that to a vsbl! (not that I don't like it, but I love the BLUE!!!~)



And....If someone would kindly please forward this
to Chris (ibzguitarist on Vai.com) the Vrmr is not for sale It was 275 pound to get the vine inlay done (in the original Jem prestige neck) Martin Sims (UK) did it. He is also the one who did the LEDs in Vai's original Bad Horsie Great guy and worth every penny!!

Some teaser pix for ya..hehe;O)








And shush Mikey, or I'll be forced to revoke your AARP privilages

Wow,
