Making my own Custom Jem

Hello everybody,
I'm an italian guitarist, big fan of Steve Vai and a typical "jem - addicted". My main guitar is the JEM77GMC

http://img355.imageshack.us/my.php?i...em77gmc6we.jpg

but I also own a JEM77FP (94) and I'm planning to buy a 77BRMR. But today I woke up with this crazy idea: is it possibile to make a custom JEM totally from scatches? I mean, are there shops which custom JEM bodies, necks, pickups & co.?

Sorry for my English! ;-)
Hope to read something from you soon
Manu

That's a nice idea, but I'd like to make a complete custom Jem, not one made with already existing parts. For example, I'm thinking of a bright neck with light blue (azure) flowers. Do you think there's someone in the whole world who can make something like this? I wrote an email to EKG, I'm waiting for an answer

Thank you!
Emanuele

You could drop a line to Jeremy of LGM guitars^. But I've heard that he's busy at the moment so waiting for a reply could take ages.

Done. Could take ages? Ok, I'll cross my fingers... ;-)

Some more suggestions? Someone who can build a JEM-Style neck out there?

Bye
Manu

Re: Making my own Custom Jem

I have never found a luthier who was up tp making a jem neck in the UK. I am sure there are some, but I couldn't locate them.

I have started building my own from scratch. It is hard work, and pretty complicated, but I am having ok results.

Wow! So you've done everything by yourself? Could you share some knowledge ;-)))?

Have you got a MSN Messenger account?

Tell me everything ;-))))

Ciao
