hey there jemsters!
I've been toying for a while with a few ideas about how to customise my old JEM777DY. first I was going to chrome it, but that would look bad with the pyramid neck, so I'm going to chrome my 550 instead.
then I was just going to strip it down to bare wood and change the pickups, but today me and a pal came up with a radical new idea.
the plan is to take all the hardware and the neck off, hang the body by the monkey grip in an outdoor area, add petrol, then apply fire.
I just want to see what happens as the yellow finish burns! obviously this will be done, as I say, outdoors, and with those fume masks you get from DIY stores, and with due care and attention with the petrol, and with plenty of water/sand available.
but... I wondered if there's anything in those finishes that I really shouldn't be burning.
I can guess that the fumes won't be nice, and I intend to avoid them as much as possible, but are they going to be highly toxic? is this a viable project?
thanks for any advice!
ps. oh, and plenty of pics/video will be taken as it happens...
