New Jem Swirl guitar project DC07 JEM 'Swirl'

The idea:


Specifications DC07:

- Body: Basswood.
- Neck: Maple with ebony fingerboard and vine inlays in red & orange neon colors.
- Bridge: Ibanez Lo Pro Edge tremolo.
- Tuners: Gotoh.
- Pickups: Dimarzios Evolution yellow color.
- Hardware: Black.
- Paint: Swirl by Herc Fede.


This project started in 2009.... and I mounted and finished the guitar this month Dec 2016. :|
I hadn't opened a thread about this guitar yet... so here it is. I hope you like it. ;)

Merry Christmas!

Dani.

Pd... tomorrow I'll post pics.

That is insane! Can't wait to see the finished pics. What made you decide to go with the EVO pickups if you don't mind me asking?
I don't know,,, I had to choose ones and what's a better option than the EVO for a Jem, you know? ;)

I'm gonna take some photos of the guitar right now and post them here, I'll be back in a moment...:p

It's just like my initial idea :smile:...

The only bad thing is that I would have prefered red inlays as I ordered, not that 'pink' neon :|; I don't like the pink on the body either... anyways, it's fine.

I also had some problems with the neck: the truss rod's screew didn't work well, the nut cavity needed sanding and leveling, and the edges of the frets hurt the hand... but I was able to fix it all. :)

cheers.

That's a custom neck with custom inlays then? Who made it for you?
It's made by ETguitars... but it needed a lot of extra work! :|

I am a little disappointed with the work that Ernie did.... not only with this neck, also with the other two that I have got from him. All with many problems..., like my other guitar DC04, by now, unplayable... the poor guitar needs a good luthier :(.
And not to mention the exaggerated waiting time.
A pity.

I'm digging on the pink myself. It's so 80's. The 80's were a great time. In no other decade would pink have been considered bad ass.
