Custom Jem finish Poll

Jemsite I need your help. As you can tell there are four different options below and I just can't seem to decide on one. I love all of these finishes so it'll be a tough one. Thanks for any possible help.

Also feel free to suggest any other color combos.

I thought the same exact thing! And then I remembered how much I love the jem 777dy, road flare red, and jem 777 vbk styles. At least I know I can't really pick a wrong one.

Re: Custom Jem finish Poll

I voted for option#4, that's the one that looks better as It is, I would change my vote if you could have matching headstocks...

Re: Custom Jem finish Poll

Id go with 2- If you want one of the other ones just go buy that guitar. It wouldn't be much of a custom if you designed it exactly after an existing guitar.

But, no matter which you pick, please make it have a MATCHING HEADSTOCK. In my opinion a matching headstock will make or break the overall look of a guitar. Its not expensive either, my luthier only charges $25 for a painted headstock. So worth it.
