    Well I have been going for the whole Jem 777Sk thing ever since getting my RG1XXV. I changed the knobs and switch tip as soon as I got it. Of course there is nothing I can do about the board and inlays short of swapping necks, and I'm not cutting a handle in it, but today I had a brainstorm. The Jem 777SK has a neon green lions claw route. Obviously I'm not going to do a lions claw route on the guitar, but I can get the same effect. So I found some 2mm thick neon green foam at a craftstore. Pulled out the original black piece and here you go.

    I like what you are doing to it, the neon green foam was a great idea.

    I haven't seen the pink one in person yet, maybe I will go today. I was not impressed with the yellow one at all. I just have never liked colored inlays at all. if it wasn't for that, I would be all over them.

    Awesome, every guitar with sharkfins needs them to be coloured so they match
