    I decided (a while ago) to build a copy (as close as I could get to anyways) of the Green Meanie, it has been 25 years since Vai retired it. So I figured it was as good a time as any. Then I found out Vai was playing locally and that was all the kick in the ass it took to get me to finish...

    For personal reasons I'm going to be selling some things coming up here, so I'll start with this puppy. This is a project I put together some time ago with various parts I acquired over time. It's an Ibanez RG550 modeled after Steve Vai's "Green Meanie" Charvel. It's got a blue Dimarzio...

    A thought just occured, i was browsing through some internet sites and saw the Fender EVH Frankenmess pos selling for 25k. Now people will buy this guitar because its synonomous with Eddie and was his most famous guitar. Evo is to Vai in the same way i think, so the question is, can anyone see...

    Hey folks, a few of us have decided to put together a run of Green Meanie replicas with GMW Guitars. I spoke with Lee at GMW today and he's thumbs up on doing this. I thought some folks here on the JEM Site would be interested as well. GMW has done two variations of the Green Meanie over the...

    I got the idea looking through the site and decided to scrap the idea of buying an rg7321 and instead make my own custom strat (i chose a strat body cause they are so damn good lookin'.) It's gonna end up looking kind of like Vai's green meanie thing. Here's the body i just ordered...

    ... but I can't seem to find any way to post them. I don't see any way to post attachments or pics. If someone can help, I would love to share some pics of the beat up, "Yankee Rose" era Green Meanie replica I have. I think you guys will like it. Rock on

    I searched the archives and can't find any discussion specifically on Vai's blue wrist support/palm-rest-thingy on the original Charvel Green Meanie. Does anyone know exactly what that thing is? It looks like it was cut from something and I can't figure out exactly what. Anyone have any specific...

    I recently found out that Wayne Charvel does a custom built Green Meanie replica guitar. (check out at www.wayneguitars.co.uk) I'm trying to decide which to buy if i ever do. A Green Meanie, or a JEM7vwh. They're both basically the same price and i equally like both of them, so which do you...

    Does anyone know what guitar is used by Steve in the crossroads movie? I'm asking because I just love the tone it's like a crystal clear screamin strat (is that what a superstrat is?). Anyways I was looking at the RG series and it seems like an RG, so can anyone confirm the model? Thanks guys.

    Ok folks, I have asked the original two 3D guys here to do this but neither really had the time, which I fully understand but I really need this done for a future project I'm trying to get started. Basically I have my dream Jem in mind and I want to get the ball rolling on getting it finally...
