Re: Custom Jem - Lacewood Project

Here is the Body & Neck: However the gold perloid inlays as originally intended, are not as gold as I would of like, it is more of tan perloid, making the tree of life not as white.

Re: Custom Jem - Lacewood Project

Looking good Ritthcie

Stick with the ~BLACK~ pups and gold harware / knobs please!

White pups = too bright

If I may....hows the quality of the vine / fret finishing, etc??

Re: Custom Jem - Lacewood Project

Gold hardware = Liberace.



Stick cosmo on there.

And I agree with eviltwin -- zebra coils would look dope.

Awesome looking guitar so far, good work.

Re: Custom Jem - Lacewood Project

Yes, I had a poll out there for this concept a while back, and its was a close tie with white pickups & white vine and the Black & Gold.

example with White pickups.


But in the end I finally decided on the Black and Gold, I have already purchased all the hardware need, I will take some more pitures, tonight, I juss got a new camera, so these were kind of test shots.

Its ok, not as tight as I have seen on some guitars, but not as bad as I have seen on the older Jems either, I have to clean up the neck more, still have some glue resin on the fret board, will take some better shot when I start to perpare everything to put together.
