Re: The 2010 Flower JEM

well i opened the page and saw the pink and green pickup photoshops and i thought hell yeah thats cool. then i saw the real pictures.... its ok, but im not buying one, as i wasnt planning on buying anything anyway, so its no big loss.

I might have to buy a 565 or anything shocking pink 777 if they did those, though. and as long as they werent limited aka expensive.

Re: The 2010 Flower JEM

The price is a little jacked!!!! You can get a PRS with a 10-topped maple cap and real shell fretboard inlays for a little less. Come on!!!!! Who is raping us, Vai or Ibanez? I almost think that they wait so long to put out cool models or new models so they can raise the price thinking we are all jumping on them because we have been deprived for so long.

Also, because I work in the business, I know the mark-up on this stuff. Ibanez is making a killing, or Vai!

Re: The 2010 Flower JEM

Is there anyone with graphic computer talents who could make/modify this new jem with a mapple neck but without chang the tree of life ?

I think it would be nice and very similar to the blue FP.

Re: The 2010 Flower JEM

everyone hates it now but it'll be funny when vai's next signature monster comes out and these will go for millions and we'll have hardcore ibanez diehards screaming for their old-style neck joints, black knobs and black, red and white floral patterns.

Joke time :P

Yeah, those are HUGE improvements over the stock guitar! Hmmmm....

I'll confess I haven't really been studying pics of the new Edge trems exactly, but have they all coming with hardened inserts where the string crosses the saddle, or is this new?

EDIT - and now I'm not sure, lol. Something's odd at the saddle, but I can't tell quite what... It's definitely not the same as the original Edge, though.

EDIT #2 -



Yeah, tough to tell in the glare, but it looks a lot like a EP-style insert.

Re: The 2010 Flower JEM

Really dig it, but at $3k there are plenty of other older Jems I'd like to own in that price range.

Re: The 2010 Flower JEM

O.k. after seeing multiple pics of the new floral JEM. I'll have to say, I hate it. That guitar looks like an abortion of bad ideas. I think one reason this guitar sucks is the fact that Universe reissue took all the hype. I think Ibanez probably spent most of their time with the new Universe, and this is like the "B side" to the Universe.

And the price being over $3k?? yeah that spells "extra FAIL" as well. Yeah it's a JEM and yeah it's a Floral. But really? black pick-ups and chrome hardware?? At least they could have used Black hardware to match the rest of the black.

This guitar is "F'ing Cheesy"....


Memo to Ibanez:

hit eject now, because this has crash and burn all over it in my book.


P.S.
I've never been a fan of the Floral Jems and looks like I never will.
