I have a Carvin DC 127, and love it. With Carvin, you get a lot for your money. If you can, try to find one that comes with their Allan Holdsworth pickups.

From a collector stand point it never left me.
Ive gone thru quite a few in my time . I have 5 jems currently and 1 clone . I have a friend that does amazing dip swirls . Ive sold quite a few of the clones on ebay .

This is a 7 DNA I no longer own this




777 MC One of my Favorites.




A regualr 777 that was dip swirled (used to be green)



UV7 MC




A Unviverse clone .


A 777 RMC Clone


Fresh from the dip


Another


One of my favorites


Those last 3 are Just basswood blanks that have been routed and finished to look like the jem.

I thought JEMs were the sickest guitar until i discovered parker. what caught my eye was the old 80's and early 90s jems with the flourescent paint and crazy colored pickups. I'd like to see a swirl done on a parker with matching pickups [:D] I'd have to say my favorite of the Swirls is the JEM lying on the table, which is prodominately pink with green black and yellow mixed in, with green pickups. I'm used to seeing the Swirled JEM's in non-pristine condition, and they look sooooo much better in new condition like that one. Could anyone photoshop a parker with a swirl paint job and colored pickups so we can see what it looks like haha

If you get one of your PM20s done in a dip swirl, be sure to post pics. oh, and could you swirl a nitefly M?. I have to little holes from where i took off my roland pickup and it would be nice to have those gone and have the finish rock too [:D]. If it could be done for the price you mentioned that would be incredible. How long does the job usually take?

good grief!  i almost bought a universe one time.  not because i was in love with the guitar, but because it was a great price.  it was a used one that was signed by steve vai in silver paint.

it had a maple fretboard and was that puke swirl finish.

i like maple fretboards.  they can look funky, but they sound brighter than rosewood.

my main axe for years was a bc rich mockingbird seven with a blank ebony board and a wolf-rose preamp.  

main disadvantage in my opinion to guitars like these is the floyd rose bridge.  they are out-dated technology now, but still very popular.  the parker guitar blows anything else away just with it's tremolo.  i get awesome control, my tuning holds up, and i never break strings (ok, maybe like twice).

nitefly no doubt. the jem 7v is basically one of ibanezs lower model rg's with a few modifications done to it...and the name makes it 2 grand.

I don't have a Fly (yet!) so my favourite is my Patrick Eggle Berlin Pro as shown below with the Boogie.
