Your Jake guitars

Postby _will_ » Fri Oct 05, 2007 3:42 am

Sorry if this has been done before (searching 'Jake guitars' didn't work too well in the search from some reason :roll: )

So I had heard that some people around here had original Jake guitars?

pics would be nice :)

then to broaden it, Jake replica's or Jake tributes?

My 1994-era ESP Jake E. Lee model. I have replaced the bridge pickup with a Duncan Distortion.

I'm converting my ESP Vintage plus to a Jake style guitar. Where can I find Jake E. Lee style pickguards?

In this world of you show me yours, I'll show you mine; I finally figured out how to post pictures of my whitey (with help from my wife).
It's an Alder Mexican Fender Strat body, a Mighty Mite compound radius (9 1/2-12") neck, DiMarzio SDS-1 slanted single coils, a Seymour Duncan JB humbucker, the standard strat trem has 5 springs and has been screwed all the way down (poor man's hardtail). I bought the Charvel decal on Ebay. A single volume knob and I need to replace the black toggle switch cap with a white one. Gotoh tunners and All Parts block saddles on the trem. The pick guard is from Pickguardian.com and it cost me about $75 but it's well worth it. I've been building this guitar in my head, and in practice, for about a year and a half. It ain't perfect but it is my favorite guitar. Hope you like it.

Left handed, I don't know. They probably were, but I haven't seen one. This one I found needed to be restored and had it's paint removed and a lot of battle scarrs. I paid 500GBP for her and put another 100 or so in on materials. all new Gibson hardware, Pigtail intonatable bridge and electronics. I researched and found the correct acrylic lacquer that Gibson used back in the day and did a complete refinish myself. Other examples of these fetch 1700-2500GBP. I would not been able to afford one of these at that price.
You might be able to find one that needs some attention and restore it for less. Here's some pics just after I buffed it out and set it up.
