    At least if you win I would get to play it once in a while! lol

    I don't think you need to actually paint one yourself. A sketch/artwork etc of your idea is all it takes apparently.

    now im not a Jem player, i have played them in the past and loved them, but i haven't seen or played one in a while...so, pause the video at about 1:57...are the frets staggered in some way?...i mean they dont look straight...is this some attempt to make the intonation more accurate or just a trick of the light...or am i drunk?!


    sorry to derail the thread somewhat!
    its an awesome competition though.

    its true temperment. since a guitar isnt a perfect instrument, this is supposed to enhance the tuning of each fret, note, and string to make them more exact....or something like that.

    While a great idea, $800 to replace the neck on my guitar just to have the chords "ring truer" is a little pricey.

    Besides, I like the idea of having to wrestle around my guitar every now and then...

    cool, you can tell i stay away from guitar related magazines , because i should really have seen that before....sounds a little gimicky for me, and way over priced, whats wrong with altering your tuning a little like i have done for the past 28years!

    Here's a Vai video where he shows his rig and guitars from 07. At about the 8 min mark he explains the frets. He's also gotta little "Eddie" in his rig...

    I have some detailed DWG blueprints of the JEM that I would share with a fellow vhlinker if someone seriously wants to enter the contest. I just gotta find the flash drive they're on.

    True. But it would be hell of a lot easier to just do it in Photoshop.
