JEM LNG 30th NGD!

Hi guys - newish here longtime non poster because I haven't had a Ibanez in a while. Last one was a 770 DX. Picked up my dream guitar - a green Jem - last night. Saw these a week ago and had to have one! Guitar is killer really great player and sounds awesome. Love the Edge trem - really smooth action.

I haven't seen much about these - I assume they are a namm 2017 announcement and I got an early one.

EDIT - just added all my pics to the first post for convenience.

Where'd you get it? I might have to go there and get a new JS if they exist...

Re: JEM LNG 30th NGD!

How the heck did you get it already? I didn't think they would street until after NAMM, and I darn sure didn't think any dealer would be allowed to let one leave their shop before Ibanez even announced them! Glad to hear good things about it though, I preordered one as well!

Re: JEM LNG 30th NGD!

Saw your post on JCF! Still impressed. I'll repeat what I already said:
"Awesome! A dream guitar I'll never be able to get my hands on. Congratz and enjoy!"

And rock the f*ck out of it! I really hope you bought it to play it.

Yeah I didn't even know that they had these out so I was surprised when I saw the three of them on the wall last week. Obviously I obsessed about it for the whole week before I went back last night to buy. Had to have a green one. I've wanted one since the orignals first came out.

This was at Sam Ash in New York. They've been on the wall for a week or more. No one there knew there was anything special about them so I don't know if Ibanez told them not to sell before NAMM or what. As of last night they still had a pink and a yellow.

I don't think they are allowed to have them on display. Perhaps one of the dealers on here knows better. Lucky you though! Maybe I should make a trip down there and see if they have anything else they shouldn't have out.

Nicely done.

Wonder why the silver retainer bar though?

Re: JEM LNG 30th NGD!

Thanks for sharing the pics, Gradturk! Congrats, a really nice guitar!

IŽd like to know, if there is any difference to the old 777 LGs. Could you maybe post another pic from the neckplate and the backside of the guitar?

And so it begins! Congratulations matey, and enjoy! I'm surprised those were on the wall for so long before NAMM too, wow.

Re: JEM LNG 30th NGD!

Wow! Quality you've managed to get your hands on one, but I'm extremely taken back they're hung up on the wall for all to see in a dealer without them even being announced yet.

I'm off to NAMM next week so I suspect to see them there... and hopefully that will just fuel my excitement for the LNG I've managed to secure

Here's the pic I snapped when I first saw them last weekend. I hadn't known these were coming but I always wanted a green on since I was a kid. They were on the wall for a week at least.
