JEM77V"BK" - Have it your way with pics


My first (and maybe only) JEM arrived last week. I have been waiting for a black JEM with scalloped frets and an AANJ for over 10 years.
I know that some of you do not like black guitars and that Ibanez should find a different color instead of mixing them all together to get black. To you, I must say, "Thank you" for not buying one and prolonging my 5 month wait any longer. For those of you that do like black guitars, I say, "It's pretty sweet and it was well worth the wait. Don't worry fretboard gurus, I used fret doctor on it after all of the pics.
Well here are some pics before I modded it (only a little though)

Congrats on the new Jem. The only Jem you'll have? Come on soldier! It can't stop there! I thought that once!

BTW: I really like that mod you did! Now that Jem looks better to me. Reminds me of the PBK. Thumbs up man.

Guess I have to see it in person first as pics usually never compare. It's not on my buy list though.

Re: JEM77V"BK" - Have it your way with pics


excellent mode. The guitar looks much much better. Did you replace the pickups or just used white bobbin toppers?

Re: JEM77V"BK" - Have it your way with pics


I really like the changes to make it look more like the 7pbk from way back when. Much classier, I think! Back in college one of the guys I used to play with had a pbk, it was my first Jem to touch, probably will always be one of my favorites. Congrats on your 'get', it makes me almost want one for myself.
