My LNG Custom - Everyone...Meet Kermit.

I have read and received many comments on this guitar, so I thought I'd post here and tell you all about it.




The body....made by John Guilford *of Guilford Guitar Works out of Idaho.

The finish.... yep, you guessed it. GMW Guitars. They do excellent work.

The pick guard.....Jeannie's....of course. Black pearl.

The neck is a standard RG wizard and the hard ware is cosmo.

The pups are Tone Zone and Paf Pro with a 3 way tele switch wired to coil split the inner coils in the middle position.

Pink dimarzio strap-lock and stainless steel neck screws finish the look.

I'm posting here because, for all intent and purposes, it's not a real Jem.

Thanks for the interest people. I really appreciate all the comments. Good or Bad....I can take it. :biggrin:

Did Steve, John and Joe comment on it when you got it signed?
Steve thought it was an original that had the neck swapped out. He asked me "Why did you change the neck?". I told him it was a custom and not an original. Joe actually asked me if he could sign it and said "The pick guard looks cool...". Steve checked the neck out for me and commented he liked the action, which was set per Jemsite's tech tips.... When I asked John to sign it he said "Really?". I think he was happy someone wanted to talk to him. People were filing by him like he wasn't there. I felt bad for him and chatted with him the most out of the three.

Great experience. I recommend it to anyone who gets the chance.
