    Hey folks, So I just added to my swirl collection an old GMC swirl done by Perle (I do not know the year it was made). I really like this swirl, it has a good mix and blend. The previous owner installed a direct drive switch and a push/pull in the tone knob. It also has the standard Dimarzio...

    Hey everyone, I've been looking high and low for someone to swirl my RG570. I have come up with nothing but horror stories of deposits taken and guitars never delivered... I'm at a loss. I had the chance to buy a Herc Fede swirl years ago and I didn't and I really wish I did... So, i came to a...
  3. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    So I have looked at this in the distant past and want to revisit it. There are companies out there that make the bodies, necks etc., for Jems. You can even customize them, for example "no monkey grip". I wanted to see if anyone has really done this, and to what "success". I have a Jem7V WH...
  4. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I originally joined Jemsite to post a build I was doing based off a Perle Guitars Fireman body that I had ordered. I covererd it in a Sapele veneer and stained it dark red. It was cool and I was proud of it, but it was also one of my 1st builds and I was a noob. The main thing was that I didn't...
  5. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hi there!! I'm so glad to introduce you my first JEM: When I was a boy, my uncle showed me the Ibanez Catalog and the 90's JEM became the guitar of my dreams, specially the PMC, with maple fretboard and swirl finished. In Spain, is very hard to find an affordable one in good conditions, so I...

  8. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    Hey guys, so I have a question about Perle Guitars on Ebay. I know they seem to have a sort of hot or cold reception on the forum, but I am looking into snagging their FR series body for a project with all Ibanez parts (except the body of course). Any opinions on them? Do the bodies look good...

    I am selling a new Jem body made by Perle Custom Guitars. I was planning to build a custom Jem, but other things have come up. I bought the body in April, and never used it. It's been sitting in a guitar case for the past few months. It is made from poplar. It has a couple of clear coat...
