If you click on the "Go advanced" link next to the post quick reply you can upload a file. Or you can host pictures at a third party and link them in your post.

Re: light up vine of life

You left some html code in there, that doesn't work. Just the basic link is required.

Re: light up vine of life

wow, thanks moebius and phantom for setting me straight on those pictures.

these vines will start at $650 on your own rg or jem. it takes 1-2 weeks to complete.
i try to have some finished ones on hand for anybody who wants a finished guitar, and in that case i sell them for $650 + the cost of the instrument(including any repairs or upgrades). right now i have this black rg 370dx, and a white 450 and a pink 25th anniversary that will be done soon.

thanks for every ones input and kind words so far! everyone here on the jemsite is always awesome!

Re: light up vine of life

I see a lot of orders coming your way in the future! Different colours, dimmable, remote controlled... what's not to like?! The other examples on your website are wicked too - especially the razorback. You could start exploring wireless DMX control possibilities - you may find a smaller demographic willing to pay for the technology but then again if the right production company picks up on it you may reach a much larger audience in the long run. Imagine the Edge had a neck decked out by you guys that was controlled by the lighting designer...

Keep up the good work and best of luck! I hope I get to own one of those vine of life inlays one day!

Re: light up vine of life

Speechlessly awesome. So you can do pretty much any custom design? I'm curious about design limitations, like total surface area that can be lit up, limitations on line thickness and dot size, number of separate lit areas allowed... Definitely interested in creating my own design!

Re: light up vine of life

thanks everybody!!!
van-the only limitation is "number of separate lit areas allowed". that gets pretty touchy.
the amount of light produced is more than enough for the vine, or something with even more surface area. i will probably do some sharkteeth on one of the next guitars, so i will post pics for you guys when it is done.
