Re: JEM LNG 30th NGD!

So the guitar is not the exact same as the original? The 87 had a 1 piece neck and this looks to be a 5 piece.

Excellent! Congratulations!

Looks like they did not want to leave out the neck improvements they came up with since.
So, this does not look limited at all. Any info on that?

Awesome.
My want for an original from '87 has just decreased to zero.

Re: JEM LNG 30th NGD!

This makes me proud to have bought an original 1987 Desert Yellow JEM. This reissue is not the reason but it reinforces what I have known for 30 years. Kudos to Ibanez for celebrating this historic guitar and Thank You to Steve Vai for bringing your vision to life. Here is to another 30 years

Re: JEM LNG 30th NGD!

Here is to you too renips!

The reissues are a homage to the ones that where there and had the opportunity, those who where there and did not have the opportunity and those who were not there but now have the opportunity to crave it or get it.

This just love all around :-).

And the extra thrill of having the real deal original will be amplified (not me though :-()

"Yeah, its really green, original and its a long story, you wanna hear all the details?"

Re: JEM LNG 30th NGD!

Very nice. is the neck profile the same as the current Jems (18mm / 20mm)?

Ibanez has not told the public they exist yet. That is why you have not seen much about them. I am impressed how easily you pulled off buying a guitar the general public is not supposed to know exists yet. In fact, it sounds like you were not aware you were "pulling anything off" in the first place, which makes the story even better.

Congrats on owning you dream guitar!

To me is unfair to other dealers to sell guitars before they are announced.

Re: JEM LNG 30th NGD!

Congrats! Someone pointed it the 5-piece neck, which I expected. Another welcome development is the 1990+ volume knob location.

I've now seen pics of these guitars at two different Sam Ash stores. Apparently those guys didn't get the memo about NAMM

Re: JEM LNG 30th NGD!

Nice find! Is the color really NEON Green? In your pics it looks like Jacksons "Slime Green"......
