    This is a Jem style replacement guitar body, that I purchased last year in hopes of starting another guitar project. It is a Nate Perle swirl. Haven't really gotten around to it and this body isn't going to be used any time soon. So I figured I'd throw it up here for sale. Guitar wood is...

    i have an ibanez rg-370. i was wondering if i could get a neck from an ibanez jem and put it on. i really like the vine inlays. i was also wondering if could mod the bridge so i could have one of those whammy bars that has the twisty thing on it. so i can tighten the bar. or replace the bridge...

    Ok. I just wanna know if this is a common problem. Cause, i recently notice that the protective layer (lacquer?) covering the logo on the head stock is starting to peel off/unstick itself/ sliding off/popping up..arrgggg i dunno what term to use for this. It looks like u used a hair drier and...

    Hi all! I wanted to share some of my work with fellow Jemsiters. Since 1992(or so), I have been blown away by Darrens work. In my opinion, his swirls are the pinnacle of a guitar finish. So, being a creative type, i set out to learn how to do it. After LOTS of trail and error, i think im...

    There have been a lot of discussions over these two different colored swirls and of course swirls in general (most Jemsters love swirls). So, of the two, which would you rather see? Honestly we probably would love to see both but if you had to pick just one! BMC see...

    I have always wanted a VWH and/or VSBL, and a EBJPM. But, is it a deterrent? Can one be taken seriously if they play a signature series guitar? The reason why it is such a tough debate for myself, is I have rarely ever found guitars that play with such ease as a JEM/JPM. The feel of the neck...

    I recently sold off more than half of my Jems & other ibanez guitars. :sad: The good thing is, these are the Ibbys that remain in the family. :smile: I may need to let go of one more, but for the moment this is what is left. I am however awaiting the arrival of two new members of the...

    Firstly, yea, I know it's a Squier and those of you with higher end guitars may cast a dubious eye on this project, but hey - it's for a friend and it's for fun. Like many of you, I'm a guitar mechanic that loves working on them as much as playing them. Specs: 1992 Squier Strat. Made in...

    Hi I'm looking to stain and oil a Mahogany jem body/neck. Any advice on which type of oil would be best suited. In fact any advice on D.I.Y finishing would be most welcome.

    God am I depressed. I was hoping it would compare to a cheaper RG series, but it just didn't. While I hated the strat knobs, the hate stopped there. The guitar had the best feel of any guitar II can remember. It made me wonder why people still buy strats. The trem was excellent and I didn't...

    If there are, have you noticed that some (if not most) Ebonite Balls look like Jem Swirls. Heres A DNA Ball, lol.

    I have just recieved my first Jem, And Jem Swirl. I had a Jem VBK a week or so back, but I took it back to Sam Ash, due to the gap in the neck pocket. This guitar was once owned by Shadow, I believe. As I have seen it in the Jem gallery. I bought it from Vwall Guitars. It plays like butter...
