JS-7th PIX! - Custom JS-7th Project

Thanks to Kevan G. The ***
of my custom JS-7th guitar can be found for a short while at:

http://jemfest.com/JS7/

Thanks again Kev!

The pics are when it was first done, it now has a coral blue finish it from www.wilkinsguitars.com.

More to come when I can. I wish I had more time to finish it sooner (more money would be nice too!)

Cheers to all!

Thank you all for your enthusiasum on the project. I just may finish it now! LOL!

The body and neck were both done by Jon Harper of Harper's Guitars. *It took about 7 months to complete both pieces. The body and neck have already been finished by Pat Wilkins, however, I have not developed the film and scanned in the photos of the finished set, as soon as I do, they will be going up (if kevan lets me!).

I've been terrible about snapping to it and finishing it (it will be close to a 1yr and half since its inception that it has not been done yet! Unfortunately, fortunately, I upgraded my home studio and couldn't afford to spend on this little luxury (BTW: Bob Oakman, Pro Tools bring it on!!!!) *and I am getting *gulp* MARRIED next year so I have things to account for (or rather she does!hehe) ;-)

To sum up the parts:
Mahogany Back
Quilt Maple Top and Headstock
Rosewood Board w. Abalone vine of life inlay.
UV spec'd neck
JS profiled Body
Lo Pro UV Edge
*expected to be installed pickups:
Tone Zone 7 Bridge
PAF Pro Neck

As soon as I get the finished pics in, i'll post those!

Thanks again
Cheers!
