    How does it look like a JEM? Does it have the monkey grip? Are the individual slots for the fine tuners of the edge tremolo filed into the cavity? Oh wait, it's a fixed bridge

    BEAUTIFUL! I love the Grain! and a jem style body! I made a PRS style guitar, Maple cap, and Tele neck profile.
    Very good!

    I noticed that you hadn't yet strung it in the pic. So........well.........how does it play? My old man has made a couple of electric guitars from different parts of broken guitars as well as parts that he fashioned himself. They play!! Woo Hoo!

    Nicely done! I presume it has roughly the dimensions of a Stratocaster? What type of wood did you use for the body?

    Thank you! Yes, it has the same look and feel as a Strat, except a couple user preferred things. I used a laminate with different types of wood, mostly pine though. thank you for the comments!
