what the heck is soft curly maple, and would it be suitable for a cap??

It is a softer less stable species of maple which should NOT be used for necks unless you laminate it with another stronger species of wood. For guitar tops it is fine and "curly" means that it has a nice tiger-like figure....

you should have torn up a cheapie guitar, NOT A JEM!!!!!

WHY!!!!!

Probably because the knowledge he gained disassembling it and the skills he already has he could build many of them with better quality than Ibanez and customized to his high standards.

Very impressive again Hyunsu! :D

Even more impressive because you truly build by hand. :D

YOU OUGHT TO BE HANGED FOR THIS ATROCITY :DB):D

Not like it was your Jem. Chill out, damn. B)

it's just a guitar....get over it.

i wouldn't have done it,but only because i would have sold it.but even a jem is only a mass produced cookie cutter guitar which can be improved upon in many ways.

well i happen to like the jems a lot, and to see one cut up(i am tempted to say wasted, but you gained knowledge from it) is like a knife in the side, like watching those movies where they destroy things that cost enough money to feed hundreds of starving children. Whatever. Neal

p.s.: hyunsu, have any more 'brand guitars' you want to get rid of? :D

oh i understand your viewpoint completely....i used to get so angry seeing kirk hammett destroy those esp guitars of his...i wanted one so bad i could taste it

but i got over it too.

he used to treasure his guitars,but i get the distinct impression that he does not really care for the esp guitars...but i think he still has all his old ones from the eightees...that jackson v of his was super nice

Hyunsu, you really are da man. Is that a knife or a magic wand.

It's good to know that if you get lost in the woods and you're with Hyunsu, you might get hungry but everyone would leave with a new freshly whittled guitar.

I think that when you've got the skills of Hyunsu you're quite within your rights to chop up any guitar that you want. Chances are it'll be replaced with something much better.

I can see cutting up a Gibson, or Fender, or PRS, but Ibanez guitars are actually comfortable to play :D

Ok, so see, it's all in what you prefer, I don't think Gibson or Fender have EVER made a comfortable guitar much less one that looks good, PRS has made some impressive looking guitars, but I don't like how they play. Nothing is more cookie cutter than a Strat or Les Paul. I like the Jem's, I think they feel like a players guitar, at any rate, invest in a contour gauge, they cost like $15 and you can get every contour you want off a neck WITHOUT having to destroy it.

Other than that, the work is impressive, I sure wouldn't have the patience to do it with a knife like that B)
