Lightbulb NGP JEM Performance Flame Swirl

Hey Guys-

I think I posted this is the wrong place original, so I moved it here.

I just bought this body to make a new toy.
I'm trying to decide one a few things and want to get some opinions and ideas from the community.
What color(s) pickup would look cool to you guys?
What fretboard and inlay ideas do you guys have?
What hardware color, Chrome, Black or Cosmo?
I have some ideas of my own, I don't want to influence anyone by telling yet.
I just want to hear what you guy think too.
Thanks
Sebastian

Black hardware.....cosmo second, but pure black would be best (it's the least prominent color on the body)

Black pup either on its own, or an emg type cover that can be painted to match the body,

Bright screaming yellow vol. knob....period.

I really like that neck, but I agree with Euphor that this guitar needs a flamey maple with cool flame like inlays in the same colors as the pyramids.

black or matching head...either is perfectly fine, but you need to change the shape to resemble a flame.............TOTAL CUSTOM LOOK.

Re: NGP JEM Performance Flame Swirl

I got the body in hand-
I took the neck off my RG520, to see how good a real Ibanez neck would fit it.
It was real nice and tight, just the way I like it.
I even put the screws in and they lined up great!
The really cool part is the lower cut-away goes about 2 1/4" past the 24th fret.
You can go all the way up and then some.
I have some stock pickups out of a few of my Ibanez guitars that now have Dimarzios in them.
I tried to put one in the body but the Ibanez pickups have square legs on them and they are too wide to fit in the body as is.
A Dimarzio has triangle shaped legs, so a Dimarzio will fit just fine.
It really needs a Maple fretboard.
The trem in the pic is a dull Cosmo or gray finish, it looks black in the pic.
I need to clean all the cosmo off with some Autosol, it's worn anyway.
Then I can see how Chrome looks on it.
I have some Cosmo in better shape and black too.
I'm still not sure about pickup and knob cloros yet, maybe Yellow.

Check out the pics I added.

Re: NGP JEM Performance Flame Swirl

I think a Maple fretboard is more in order for this guitar.
Red, Orange and Yellow Pyramids or a three color vine maybe.
The vine could be one color, the small leaves another color and the big leaves the third color.
Or if I could get inlay material that looks like flames for the vine.

Me thinks you are right about the maple board after seeing it with the rosewood.

Re: NGP JEM Performance Flame Swirl

1. Go with a maple board.
2. Get the flame inlays from aiguitars--would look better with the body rather than vines or pyramids.
3. Red/yellow DiMarzios from BanjoMike.
