    Default Recommendations for JEM replica

    I'm interested in doing an old school JEM replica - the basswood body with the pyramid inlays. I think I'm going with neon yellow. And NO all access neck joint.

    Can anyone recommend a builder for such a project?

    I know that this is non-Van Halen related, but I'm also wondering if the old cosmo black tuners and tremolo are available anywhere - I mean like, new in a box. If not, I'll search ebay I guess. I'm looking for what they would have used in 1987 or 88.

    Thanks.

    Do a google search for Christopher Woods Guitars. He does JEM stuff with the inlays.

    Do a search on Jemsite about Christopher Woods. I would not advise using him. I guy I worked with had a neck built by him and never recieved it after waiting 7 months. I would suggest Jaden Rose or Ernie at ETguitars.

    ET guitars has a great rep. There are tons of comments about their work on Jem site. They are in Australia, but the work stands for itself...
