Got a Beautiful Swirl Pickguard!

After searching the web for awhile I located a small company in New York that had some pro-looking swirl pickguards for my Jem- Pickguard Paradise - www.pickguardparadise.com - I called and spoke with Jennifer, who designs the swirls and who's husband, Tom actually fabricates them.

Well, after telling them what I wanted, Jennifer said they have a whole lot more designs that aren't on the website and that she would email me a bunch more designs. She was great on the phone.

I found just what I wanted and shot out a check for it and today I received my new swirl pickguard. It takes Tom around 1 1/2 weeks to make them and every one is special order. There are none on a shelf waiting to be shipped. THIS THING IS SO SERIOUS! I can't tell you how pleased I am. If you are considering an upgrade to your Jem and don't have the cah for a PMC, check out this site of extremely high quality pickguards and give Jennifer a call. I asked Tom if he would consider making custom Truss covers and backplates too, he's looking into it.[/img]

lol, yeah I too get the impression that he wants pictures. A few piccies wouldnt go amiss though, it would be nice to see at least. I think it would depend on the guitar colours and tones on how good it will look. At the minute I cannot imagine a swirl pickguard looking very good at all. But I am open to try new things!

That looks crazy. Is it a swirled mirror.

Is it just me or does the guitar look like a 3D model?

(i know it's not, it just looks like it)
