Thanks a lot. Was it expensive. Its in the eye of beholder :) It was cost less than a jem7vwh. I can say that :)

We organised a modest meeting&guitar clinic for one of a national guitar hero in Turkiye named Ergin Altinel*. He played with Red Jem, too (he generally plays his BRMR).

Here is very short shot of Red Jem;

Pickguard had still its scratch guard on it, so that it seems bad. If you pick it up, you will see the perfect mirror appearance.

Unfortunately. But at least we do (sometimes) :)

But it's not a JEM. No offence intended at all. How much of it is authentic? The Body? The neck?

Why do you think it is not a jem? I respect what you think, but i wonder why, actually...

About its authenticity and spesifications;

Body was made from one piece Mahogany & Abachi which are dired for years. I was told that 20 years old and im not sure about actual 20 but im sure for 2 years :)

Upper part of the body is mahogany and bottom is Abachi. We did something like that because we want something to have mahogany warmness, sustain, tone but not mahogany weight. So the bottom is Abachi which is lite-weight wood like basswood. But its structure appears more close to mahogany than any other wood.

Neck is hard rock maple like fretboard. It has more of a "wizard" profile than the "jem" profile according to the customers requests. Its formula may be something like that: %60 wizard and %35 Jem and %5 others...

Hardware is ibanez prestige hardware&gotoh. Pick ups are Evolutions except middle single.
