I love it! It reminds me of one of my all time favorite Jems, the JEM7 Root Beer.


Stunning!

Re: JEMJR Mods - Don't try this at home

Your guitar looks great pteropid. Well done.

I cant remember if I have said this before or not but I have 4 Jem Jrs now (2 white, pink, yellow) and its only on the first one I bought (white when they were first released) that has the fret sprouting happening. The other 3 are fine. No probs at all. Maybe Ibanez realized that they were doing something wrong with them and fixed the problem with the first batch.

I picked up the latest one (white) a few months back for $300. Original plan was to have it painted LNG, but wont be doing that now.

I'm having ET Guitars make me a LNG Jem right now... Its going to have a rosewood neck with green vine... Should be finished in a month or two...

I'm also going to get ET Guitars to make me a raw alder body to do the Bad Horsie guitar. I'll use the Jem Jr neck and probably sell the body. I love that guitar... I was going to sand down the body but thats too much work and I cant be bothered...

I think I'm going to contact ET guitars about finishing off the JEM777VBK restoration. They seem to have a good reputation.

Re: JEMJR Mods - Don't try this at home

Man this is such a cool post! Thanks so much for sharing. I'll second another comment and say that I'm really glad you mentioned the issue with the posts; I'm currently looking into replacing my standard DL trem in a cheap RGA with an Edge Pro and would love to replace the posts, so this is definitely food for thought.
