I have a strat knock off thats going to get the treatment. Completely redone. There are a few Jems I would like to paint my strat like. Help me choose.
The desert yellow....777dy, ala Mr. Fastfinger.
Evo.....7VWH
Green......777LNG
Any comments or other suggestions?
Eventually I am going to do all of these but this is the first.
Which one to start with?

I'd say EVO to start, but that's just me.

I would really like to start with EVO, but now that I think about it, my guitar has a maple fretboard. I might have to start with the yellow. I gotta keep them somewhat close to the original.

Nah.

I'm joking. Do whatever you think you need to do.

EVO will be next. I did a Charvel in EVO style a while back. Hand painted the vine inlay on the neck. It really looked good.
Should be interesting either way. :P

Talking about customizing. Found a custom Jem. It was a Jem777SK and got painted black and then paintedbrushed. This owner got it stripped down and gave it a Rootbeer color.
