JEM777 30th Anniversary Pre-Order registry (UK only)

Thought it would be an idea to get everyone that wants to share this info to register who they have pre-ordered with and what they have been told is there delivery date.



Format

User name:
Colour:
Date of preorder:
Ordered from:
Estimated delivery date:


So for me,

User name:superclarkey
Colour: LNG
Date of preorder:02/02/2017 [CANCELED]
Ordered from:GAK [CANCELED]
Estimated delivery date:JUNE [CANCELED]

Mine has been cancelled.

PLEASE ADD AND DISCUSS

If guitarguitar had sent me that email, I would be ****ing furious. I still find it utterly bizarre that on one day Andertons told me, in an email, that they wouldn't be buying any of the 30th guitars as "they wouldn't sell"...only to then order 9 of them two days later.

To be honest, I don't think it matters if you don't get an LNG this time. Ibanez will do another run. If retailers are screaming for more guitars, they'll build them. That's why they haven't announced a production run officially. They are testing the waters. Good business, in my book.

Gak said to me they where authorised 6 guitars in total, two in each colour, so they only had 2 in LNG, when I called they said someone had cancel their order so there was one avalible etc then they went onto say that I was the 3rd pre-order as Ibanez had allocated more guitars however mine would be on the second wave of incoming guitars, hence my delivery date being June... I don't know what to believe but if I hear anything I will share it in here.

I emailed guitarguitar this morning regarding a delivery date and got this reply:-

"There has not been an issue as such it's just the whole CITES regulations have caused delays. I cannot give a delivery update at the moment but it looks like it could be between April and June. We should hopefully have some more concrete information in the next few weeks so I will let you know as soon as I hear something."

Glad you're not affected and thanks for sharing this. Clear as mud to me what is actually going on then (except for part that there is no guitar heading my way anytime soon). Will try and speak to them again tomorrow but not holding my breath.....

I asked if was just delayed but they said that whilst there had been some delays in my case supplier was simply changing the number of guitars on offer. Apparently they are now getting 4 rather than 6 they ordered and I was number 5 of the 6......so at least one other disappointed punter out there presumably.

What are the chances of walking into a shop and buying one of these? I'm not a fan of buying guitars I haven't played, it's too much money to blow on an unplayed guitar. Also @superclarkey - Are you the same Clarky that used to be on the Musicradar (Guitarist mag) Forums? Massive ibanez guy, I picked up my 94 Jem at his house a good 13 years ago!

Chances appear to be slim! Always is tough for guitars with limited availability, not even the larger stores carry full ranges. Like you I'm not a fan of buying untested but have done it twice where my 'need' for guitar outweighed the risk, at least for me. Both times worked out fine too (a jem and a UV).
