For those wanting a custom Jem neck, and some questions
I may have a possible source for making a custom or several custom Jem necks. I had a Jem 7VWH but sold it, because of a few things I didn't like including the neck. (No flames please) So I'm going to build a Jem with a soloist style AANJ neck (smaller nut and compound radius). I found a very experienced and enthusiastic luthier who is willing to make them(great!) but doesn't have a pattern or the measurements etc for making the AANJ. He has CNC equipment so he can duplicate necks exactly.(escept licensed headstock shapes of course) But I don't have an AANJ neck to send him. Does anyone have one they can loan me or rent to me? In the long run, we can all benefit if we need necks made. Also, does a 24 fret RG have the same neck joint? if so an RG neck would work.
If there's enough interest we could probably get a good discount on the price.
