Exclamation Bizarre JEM... Jackson JEM O_o

Just found this on a Brazilian popular auction site...






Roughly translated, that's what the guy wrote:
Quote:
- JACKSON JDR-94 CONCEPT
- TRANSFORMADA EM JEM 777 PELO BETA LUTHIERIA (0 Luthier mais famoso de MG) [transformed into JEM 777 by most famous luthier on MG]
- DIMARZIO TONE ZONE [bridge]
- CAPTADOR DIMARZIO PAF PRO [neck]
- CAPTADOR JACKSON ALNICO [middle]
- PINTURA ESPECIAL BRANCO PEROLIZADO [special pearl white paint]
- FURO DE PEGADA IGUAL DA IBANEZ ["hole to put the hand" same as Ibanez]
- ESCALOPAGEM COMPLETA DAS 27 CASAS [complete scalloping of 27 (?) frets]
- MARCAÇÃO DENTE DE TUBARÃO [sharktooth inlay]
- ESCUDO MADRE PÉROLA ORIGINAL [original pearloid pickguard]
- PONTES E TARRACHAS ORIGINAIS JACKSON [original Jackson tremolos (?) and tuners]
WTF ???

Re: Bizarre JEM... Jackson JEM O_o

Why do people think it looks so lame?


I'm not a fan of the JEM anways so yeah I'm not all over this Jackson, but to me it's not any uglier than an original JEM. It's just different.


If your saying it's lame that someone tried to copy a JEM by using a Jackson then okay, but as far as looks go, I just don't see why it's uglier.

Red face Re: Bizarre JEM... Jackson JEM O_o

Late nights top 10 reasons it's uglier...(imagine Figs' drum roll)

10-black pickguard screws...

9-creme and black pups over pearloid pickguard...

8-black trem, nickel nut, black machines...

7-sharktooth inlays...

6-off set, oversized grip look...

5-body is too rounded and stratish so that the pickguard looks bad at the horns...

4-"For The Love Of God" there's no lions claw...

3-It says "Jackson" on that silly looking headstock...

2-Srat looking body seems fat and dumpy...

1-"Little" Stevie Vai doesn't play 'em...

There's a whole bunch of things I don't like bout the JEM as is, but this is about 10 times worse. Barf.

Ah, I like the vine on guitars other than JEMs, but this thing still gives me diarrhea.
