    Just thought I'd share some pics of the Jem I am putting together. I had the body built and sprayed by Martin Sims over here in England. I would highly recommend him, his work is excellent & he had great communication throughout the build. The neck is from a 555, but I am going to get the...

    Besides Chris Woods and Monster Guitar, is there anybody else who make custom Ibanez necks with the LED lights? Is it possible to buy just the lights from somewhere? I have somebody locally that does custom work, but he's never seen the LED's. So if there is a place to buy just the light...

    I will report back in a little while, but for right now, I will leave you all with some pictures. The pictures aren't so great since this is even harder to photograph than I thought. It DOESN'T get any more dirty than any other guitar, but it just looks that way because of the finish.

    Right, after a few months of mulling over this SK, I decided to let Rich know I'm gunna take it. Now I am thinking about what to with it, maybe a new paint job? I'm not a collector really, I just want to restore the guitar back to it's original shape.

    Well the title basically says it all. I'm refering to stuff like this http://homepage.mac.com/bigvelvetdog/LED/led5.html at first I didn't realy like it because of the way the dots apeared at the higher frets. (i say "lights" and "dots" because i dont know if fibre optics or leds are used on a...

    I just bought this JS1 from Rich. It had ALLOT of finish issues. So I sent it in to BC Guitars and had them do a new paintjob on it, repair the finish issues in the headstock, and put a new green Ibanez logo on it. Now that its done it will be sent to Christopher Woods for some green LED's in...

    Hi everybody I'm looking for some input on this guy. You can check his work at: http://www.perleguitars.cjb.net He started building Ibanez style necks as well as doing swirls and body mods so I wanted to know if someone here is familiar with his work and if it's any good?

    has anyone out there in Jemsite land get any good methods for protecting the logo on the JEM headstock as we all know it is stuck on over the lacquer. i don't want to ruin the look of my insturment and would really appreciate some feedback on this.
