The 2010 Flower JEM

Hey there guys,

Is this the new floral pattern JEM?!

EDIT: Sorry, can't post images or links yet. Check out vai.com /news, take a look at the pic of Steve, Mary J. Blige etc. and check out the guitar Steve is carrying.

It looks new to me but I've never been that up to date on Vai's guitars.

Re: The 2010 Flower JEM

Re: The 2010 Flower JEM

i haven't been paying a huge amount of attention but i thought the new 2010 floral jem was supposed to be black, red and white like that one. there has never been a production jem in that finish.

Ziggla, I think you may just have stumbled upon the jackpot...

EDIT: There's a monkey grip on there somewhere right?

Re: The 2010 Flower JEM

I believe I see a monkey grip and it looks an awefull lot like an Edge. Wasn't there supposed to be a new trem?

Re: The 2010 Flower JEM

What is funny is that the new Jem (IF this really is the new Jem) was first revealed while 99% of Jemsite members were fast asleep in their beds.

Oh good, there's a monkey grip (I was worried for a minute there XD).

I'm not sure if he specifically stated that it was a new trem, but maybe a "revolutionary" new feature in/on the trem. Since we have no clue what that feature is, we can't spot it in the photo

Re: The 2010 Flower JEM

true or not this looks like the same guitar he has the real illusions flower pattern on that was posted here
http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f15/ne...llusion+guitar

but with some color change. biggest change of all is the black as the base color instead of a blueish/white, also the pinks have been changed to red, i assume the red goes better with the black and pink looked better with white. just my assumptions.

but at this point we are all still just guessing untill we hear from steve or ibanez. but still cool pic.

Re: The 2010 Flower JEM

I had a close up look in photoshop, and I cant really see a monkey grip at all.

The trem looks like an original Edge and im kinda liking the guitar whatever it is...

I zoomed up close in my browser and thought I could see an absence of color around where a monkey grip should be.

But honestly, I would be 100x more likely to buy a new JEM if it didn't have a monkey grip. :S
