Ibanez Catalog for JEM and UV 2013

Hi guys

Just let us know what you think about the brand new ibanez catalog 2013 about JEM et UNIVERSE ?

In particular the JEM7V7 ???
According to me, she's Woawwwww !!!)

And the Universe Premium model ???
Mmmm.... Ok... But where's the original one ? why ibanez didn't produce any Universe "made in japan" in 2013 ???
Ok, she's black since so long time but she could have been refresh but not deleted )

And you my friends and Jem&Uv fans, what do you think about it ???

Cheers.

Manta.

Agreed 100%. For me the Indo Universe fits right into my budget. It's a really nice looking guitar for a great price. I have been dying to pick up a seven string since I sold my RG7421 a few years ago. And now I have the opportunity to get an Ibanez Premium Universes for under 2k. I can't wait to pick one up.

Meh, seems to me like an underrating operation for the Universe, maybe the end of the original top notch 7 string line to let the new 7 string Jem rise

Please explain the extensive experience you've had with the EZ2 to come to this conclusion.

I'd like to know too cuz I was under the impression that the EZ2 is a good bridge. I have an EZ bridge on my RG2550z and I love that bridge - stable and stays in tune.

What's your opinion on the EZ2 Rich? I'm not sure how it differs from the original EZ on my 2550z

It's virtually the same bridge as the EZ sans the intonation bolt.

Re: Ibanez Catalog for JEM and UV 2013

Sorry guys I shouldn't have said that since all of my Ibanez's have Edges, Edge Pros or Lo-Pro Edges. I was under the impression that anything with a 2 or 3 is not nearly as good as the Edge or Zero. I have had horrible experience with the TRS Trem on a RG7420. I have heard that the edge 2 and 3s are not good and have felt that in guitar stores so I assumed the Zero 2 would be the same kind of thing.

Not a fan of the Edge Zero 2. Return my RG920. It just feel cheap compare to the Edge Pro.
