First of all it's not a production model, it's a guitar someone has put together from seperate parts or modded.
To me it's either a Jem77BFP neck one another Jem body, or it is actually a Jem77BFP with a refinished body, which would actually be a shame since the BFP bodies are gorgeous and that thing's just quite ugly.
I'm sure he could have done something far nicer with it if he had to modify it at all.
Even by finishing the body and headstock in the same colour as a VSBL it would have looked a million times better than it does now.
I dont get it. IMHO this guitar (with a matching headstock) looks 100 times better than a VSBL or a VDY, VSK, etc, etc. Plus, if the vines in the body are inlays, the guitar probably looks a lot better in a close up.
Then again, those vines may look pretty bad in a close up. The pics just arent good enough to to justice to the guitar.
Sure it could ve been done better: a VWH freatboard would probably make a better match with the the body vines. Or if the guitar body was painted in a darker violet colour with lightblue vine inlays, it would also be a better match with the neck it has. And as I said, the matching headstock is mandatory. But I still think it looks pretty cool as it is.
And, finally, before saying that someone ruined a BFP you should know how was the condition of that BFP.
Can you post better pics of the guitar? May be a close up of the vines in the body?
ahh, I see it now, my mistake I see the blue vines on the headstock, with just a quick glance though I saw that black headstock and the wood was darker so I though 550, oh well. Yeah you guys got it dead on.
