Re: Custom Jem by ET Guitars

I was gonna assemble myself, but, even tho it works out more expensive, Ernie has ordered pickups etc and ill get him to do the full assembly.

Re: Custom Jem by ET Guitars

Congrats man. Can't wait to see it all together.

I had a full custom 7 string built by Ernie last year. It's currently my favourite guitar. It just feels "right".


quick ques, are you going to assemble it, or is Ernie?

Re: Custom Jem by ET Guitars

Ernie had the guitar for around 6 months as he was quite busy with other projects at the time. I got the decal from bestdecals.com and posted it down to him. He stuck it on the headstock and then clear coated over it.

Be patient and take your time. You can't do these projects in a rush.

Sorry, yip your right...... rear route..... yeah basically the Universe Swirl look on a Jem body.....

Ive never spent money like this before on an item that cant be seen, its purely in my head but the idea of seeing it in the flesh will eventually make the spend worth it I hope....

Heres what Im getting....

From Rich Harris I have ordered a Lo-Pro Edge Trem, Nut and Tuners in black....
Green Dimarzio Breeds and HS-2 pickups...
and ET Guitars is building me a front route Jem,P&W swirl finish, clear pick guard, AANJ, Ebony 3 piece neck with pyramid inlays

Here in NZ we dont get many Jems or Universes let alone swirl finishes so this is pretty exciting for me....

I hope its all worth emptying my credit card for!..... More info as I get it.....
Good luck man! Seems like you're dealing with some reputable people, so hopefully it translates to your grail guitar in the end. You only live once, right?!

Pictures must be had for sure!
