Re: Custom Jem (with GK)- In Working!!

I'm still blown away at the quilt on that axe. The maple would look sweet but like Oracle13 said, choose for tone, feel and what you like in aesthetics. The maple might be a bit to "spanky" with a swamp ash body so a very dark rosewood might tame it down a notch, but what do I know?

Lookin' forward to the finished guitar.

Gorgeous top on that Jem Lizod! SWEET! But I can't believe all of these recommendations for a maple neck ... based on aesthetics alone. What about tone? What about the feel? That's why I choose ebony. It looks great, feels great, and I like the sound.

OMG! Now that is a nice quilt top. I wish the JEM line would get a maple top at some point.

That quilted top is absolutely beautiful. I also though the mockup with the maple neck looked killer.

If you go blue vine for the neck I think it'd look better with a wood coloured stem. The body looks amazing.

Re: Custom Jem (with GK)- In Working!!

Nice neck man! I'm really starting to think about having a maple neck now, and staining the headstock really should be done, dead right. Can't f*** around here really!

Project has been put back a few months though because I accidentally went out and bought another Gibson Les Paul last week. I only meant to buy some ear-plugs! Sorry my fellow Ibanez freaks, but I sort of have a deep rooted Gibson addiction, and the last two guitars I bought were ibi's, and then this Jem thing started!

I will finish it in the new year though, and I'm going to do it properly!!!

Re: Custom Jem (with GK)- In Working!!

My neck would look good on that guitar too...Blue pearl on the big leafs, white pearl on the small leafs, a mirror gold stem, which is also bound with a pearl binding.



The quilt on that body is fantastic!

Re: Custom Jem (with GK)- In Working!!

Nice I'm really digging that neck. you HAVE to get it finished to look the same as the body. If you are doing this thing, you might as well spend the money and do it right. Or else every time you play it you will think "Man I shoulda had it stained the same"

Looking good though!!

Re: Custom Jem (with GK)- In Working!!

I definitely say go with the maple dude!

It is going to be a kick butt guitar regardless though

Good luck with making that decision XD
