Talking Killer guitar holder for Jem or Euphoria

Hey guys!

I got a really cool guitar holder for my birthday and thought I would show you guys. It was made by a gal I work with. She makes all kinds of custom surfboard guitar holders and after seeing my EP7, she decided to give me one for my birthday. Even though the vine on the board mimics the Euphoria's vine, my Jem7vwh looks great on it also.

Here's a pic: http://www.jasonrpcrabbe.com/files/vwh_angle.JPG

The vine goes all the way up the board, just like the Euphoria's and Jem's vines go all the way up the fingerboard.

This is not your typical guitar holder!!! I'm definitely going to ask her to make me one for my Jem!

Anyway, let me know if you guys want one of these and I'll arrange one to be made for your Jem or Euphoria. I think she charges less than $200 for these. Not bad since she spends around 8 hours making them BY HAND. Plus, why not put a classy guitar holder behind your $2400 guitar?

The vine is NOT an inlay. It is a hand-painted vine--and looks totally killer. You can specify what types of wood she uses. Mine is maple. She doesn't join different kinds of wood together. It just looks that way. She carefully uses different stains to make this look a lot more exotic than it actually is. This keeps the cost down, but the looks stay UP!

Cheers!

-J

Re: Killer guitar holder for Jem or Euphoria

IbanezFreak777, let me know the details of what you want (e.g., wood, design) and I'll contact my friend and ask her how she wants to do this. I know she had 6 orders that she was filling, but I'm sure she'll be happy to do another.

(and yes, an ebony one for a vwh WOULD be killer!)

Re: Killer guitar holder for Jem or Euphoria

Can she airbrush? Maybe I should send some pics of my board and see if she could duplicate it for the hanger?

Re: Killer guitar holder for Jem or Euphoria

I will ask her (about duplicating Surfdog's awesome board, not about marrying me!).

She is very resourceful.

Re: Killer guitar holder for Jem or Euphoria

I just got an email from MF that has a banner saying if you buy the new Dick Dale signature Fender, The Beast ($2400 or so), that you get a free surf board display while suplies last valued at $949. Does your friend have anything to do with that?

The MF sku for the Fender Surfboard is 992258. It's a "Genuine Fender Merchandise" item, so it doesn't appear to me that it has any connection to crossjem's friend.

Re: Killer guitar holder for Jem or Euphoria

It looks alright I guess (if you're into surfing).

I think these are better:

Re: Killer guitar holder for Jem or Euphoria

looks a bit bulky for my taste.. i like the surfboard idea, especially if you could make a stable one that didn't attach to the wall but simply leant against it like a real board but without falling..
