Anyone seen these before? Jem and PGM knock off's.

I just bought one to see what they are like. I picked the white Jem.

I figure if the quality is ok then Ill replace the pickups and bridge. If i sux, Ill prolly just keep the body and part out the rest on ebay. I should get my money back on the pieces without a problem. Body is basswood so there shouldnt be any problems there. The monkey grip needs some minor routing to be correct and the jack socket needs to be replaced with the correct barrell jack. Hell I might even attempt the lions claw tutorial Brian did a while ago. The headstock just needs a small amount of wood removed to be the correct shape.

I should get it within the week.

That looks a LOT like a guitar made by a place in China that builds nothing but Ibanez knock-offs. From what I've read/been told, the quality is for shite. If I'm not mistaken, the prices are at or about the $200.00 USD range. From what I could tell on the english version of the company's site, the neck and body are made out of decent lumber. I can't remember what the name of the company is though. :D

I'll see if I can find more info.

Hey Uncle 0s, if you could find the info on the manufacturers site that would be great.

Hey there BeAR... I've looked all over the darn place and came up empty handed. I found some links to pix that are now defunked. Sorry I came up short on this one. I know you'd certainly like some more information. :D

Hmm.. if the neck is ok, the only things to replace are the hardware, pickups, and floyd. I would estimate that at.. $400 if you get the best.. So.. a JEM for about $600? Pretty good!
