reamer Posted April 29, 2009 Report Share Posted April 29, 2009 Here is an old RG550 I was going to make into a LNG777 replica...then had the availability to get a swirl done - so I did. Thanks to Perle Guitars! So all I have really done with this project is rounded up a bunch of different parts off of ebay, and doing the clear... It all started 7 years ago actually. It was a nasty metallic green RG550. I stripped the paint off to bare wood, and put a basic clear on for the natural look. Found a 550 neck - put that on... Got some hardware, and EMG's...routed a hole in back for a 9v to power them... And played it natural looking until about 2 weeks ago. Now this is what it looks like with it's first round of clear. The body had some imperfections prior to the swirl, so I am going to keep clearing/sanding until its all nice and smooth... I will post some pictures once it's all put back together - hopefully by the end of this week. I am not trying to make this a JEM by any means - it's my own creation - I already have a FP Jem. I just love the look of the grip and claw - so why not! Too bad it's a front route and the pickguard is going to cover up some of the cool swirl!
